Welcome to the Yorkshire Branch of The Western Front Association. 

We meet on Saturdays at 2.30pm

For 2018 we are not asking for any entry donation 'on the door' - the meetings are totally free for WFA members and non-members alike. 

 

Venue

The branch venue for our monthly meetings is easy to find, being in "The Hive" block of Manor Academy, Millfield Lane at Nether Poppleton.

Millfield Lane can be accessed off the A1237 (York's northern ring road).

See map below for the location of our venue. 

From the school car park go to the service road on the right hand side of the complex and follow the footpath past the cycle shed. The entrance to the Hive is directly in front of you. Go through the automatic doors and turn immediately left up the stairs (a lift is available for anyone with mobility problems).

 

Car Parking

There is a large free car park on site.

 

Buses

The number 10 bus (out of York City Centre) runs every half hour and stops directly outside the school

 

Refreshments

After the presentation, but before the Q&A session with the speaker, we have a break with refreshments available. We ask for a nominal donation at this point. 

 

Members and non-members of The Western Front Association are equally welcome.

Any new visitors are guaranteed a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome from a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
