This page will be updated as soon as new programme events, or changes to existing events, are known. If in doubt, please contact one of the committee members for the latest news.
Monthly meetings (including a buffet), are normally held at the The Conservative Club, Beverley on the last Monday of each month, commencing at 7.30 pm and generally finishing around 10pm. We do not charge an entry fee but both members and guests are requested to donate £2 per head to help defray the cost of engaging external speakers to our meetings. Please note that Sue, our Treasurer, is building a database of members and regular visitors to our meetings in order to be able to advise everyone quickly in case of late cancellations or changes to meetings. So, please do not be offended if she approaches you at the next meeting and asks you to fill out a form with some personal contact details!
The Conservative Club has a large car park which is open to the general public and under the management of the private company – Tap2park, . The building is on one level and our meeting room area (known as the Music Room) is situated on the right after you enter the front door.
The car park requires payment and there is a payment machine at the road entrance which accept coins, as well as online pre-payment by credit card via the website tap2park.co.uk. If you are a BCC member, car parking is covered under your membership fee but you still have to register your vehicle’s registration mark electronically inside the Club entrance.
The tap2park location of this car park which is open 24 hours is 8569. Three hours (ample time for our meetings) will now cost £2.40 but shorter and longer parking periods are available. The machine will issue a ticket which should be placed in clear view on your vehicle’s dashboard. Should you not wish to pay this parking charge, street parking (currently free after 6pm) is theoretically available within a short walking distance at Saturday Market, North Bar Within, North Bar Without and New Walk.
If paying using coins, please note that you must enter your vehicle registration details before selecting your intended parking duration. You need to follow the 6 step by step instructions shown below the touchpad in order to print your ticket. Insert only one coin in order to trigger the online connection and then add further coins when instructed to do so.
The Conservative Club is located in Wylies Road, Beverley. The building is virtually opposite North Bar. If you are travelling through the centre of Beverley from the south, go through North Bar (traffic lights) and immediately turn right into Wylies Road. The Club is a well-signed white building with the car park entrance approximately 100m further down on the left-hand side. If approaching from the Westwood, cross at the lights, then look for the building on your left. Coming into Beverley from the north, at the lights turn left, again the Club is immediately on your left. For Sat Nav users, the Post Code is HU17 7AP.
The 2021-22 programme of events had been planned to roll-over from the previous year’s programme, up to and including January 2022.
