As always newbies welcome - we're a friendly bunch. The cafe is near to Westgate station inside the same building as Wakefield library, so convenient for bus and train. Most convenient parking is the station car park, which isn't too expensive either. Can everyone have a think about new books for upcoming meetings please? See you there!
