YLAL Meetings

New members are welcome to come along to our meetings. There is no need to confirm your attendance – just turn up. There’s no obligation to talk at the meetings – just come along and observe if you’ve never been to a meeting before and are nervous about speaking. On the other hand if you have lots to say, feel free to come along and say it!
