BECKENHAM & BROMLEY MYN PUB EVENING IN ELMERS END
Wed 6 Mar 2024 - 20:00 to 23:00
The Elm Tree, 116 Croydon Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4DF (Click for Map)
How to find us:     In the Elm Tree pub

We hold two pub evenings a month on the first and third Wednesdays, with all the other Wednesdays being Zoom pub evenings. We also normally have a monthly quiz on the last Wednesday of the month, during the Zoom evening, at about 9pm, where a different member of our group prepares the questions to be used each month.

This means that tonight is an actual pub evening.

We are meeting at the Elm Tree pub in Elmers End. This is an Irish pub and is between Elmers End Green and Elmers End tram stop/South-Eastern railway station. Parking is free in the nearby side-streets and in the pub car-park. There are quite a few bus routes in the local vicinity. Most members will be eating here tonight and the meal prices and menu are typical for this type of pub.

Look for the IVC name on one of the tables. We usually try to sit towards the back of the pub on the right hand side, in the restaurant area.

Some of the Beckenham & Bromley MYN group participate in a monthly Investment Club where we each contribute £25 to invest in UK equities. The meetings are always held on the second Thursday of the month. The Investment Club has been running for just under 25 years, but we always welcome new or potential members. Prospective members are given up to three months to decide whether to join as active members.

The choice of which shares to buy, or to sell, is decided by those particpating in tonight's meeting in a majority decision.. The meeting gives everyone a chance to discuss the stock market, the economy or anything else which members have noted could effect the various share prices.

Contact Roland in advance, preferably by e-mail, so that he can send you a link to click on at the start of the meeting.

BECKENHAM & BROMLEY MYN PUB EVENING IN ELMERS END
Wed 3 Apr 2024 - 20:00 to 23:00
The Elm Tree, 116 Croydon Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4DF (Click for Map)
How to find us:     In the Elm Tree pub

We hold two pub evenings a month on the first and third Wednesdays, with all the other Wednesdays being Zoom pub evenings. We also normally have a monthly quiz on the last Wednesday of the month, during the Zoom evening, at about 9pm, where a different member of our group prepares the questions to be used each month.

This means that tonight is an actual pub evening.

We are meeting at the Elm Tree pub in Elmers End. This is an Irish pub and is between Elmers End Green and Elmers End tram stop/South-Eastern railway station. Parking is free in the nearby side-streets and in the pub car-park. There are quite a few bus routes in the local vicinity. Most members will be eating here tonight and the meal prices and menu are typical for this type of pub.

Look for the IVC name on one of the tables. We usually try to sit towards the back of the pub on the right hand side, in the restaurant area.

SWIMMING AT QUEENSWAY
Wed 3 Apr 2024 - 20:15 to 21:00
Porchester Centre, Queensway W2 5HA (Click for Map)
How to find us:     Find us in the big Pool at the Porchester Centre

Price:     £8

The big pool at the Porchester Centre is reserved exclusively for IVC from 20.15 to 21.00 on Wednesdays.  The pool is bigger than most local pools and is newly refurbished.  They take out the lane swimming ropes specially for us giving a better swimming experience.  We can usually get access to the changing rooms from 20.00.   Do not pay on entry because we have already paid for a block booking; pay our treasurer on exit. Afterwards we meet at a local pub , the Leinster Arms in Leinster Terrace.  Underground stations are nearby (Queensway, Bayswater and Royal Oak).

INVESTMENT CLUB
Thu 11 Apr 2024 - 20:30 to 22:00
Zoom
How to find us:     On Zoom - contact Roland in advance for link

Some of the Beckenham & Bromley MYN group participate in a monthly Investment Club where we each contribute £25 to invest in UK equities. The meetings are always held on the second Thursday of the month. The Investment Club has been running for just under 25 years, but we always welcome new or potential members. Prospective members are given up to three months to decide whether to join as active members.

The choice of which shares to buy, or to sell, is decided by those particpating in tonight's meeting in a majority decision.. The meeting gives everyone a chance to discuss the stock market, the economy or anything else which members have noted could effect the various share prices.

Contact Roland in advance, preferably by e-mail, so that he can send you a link to click on at the start of the meeting.
