The Partridge Group - men's discussion group

The group, open to any man who can drink beer (or other beverage) and talk religion at the same time, usually meets in the Three Tuns public house in Abington on Wednesday evenings, in January and February. To find the Three Tuns, use postcode CB21 6AB.

in 2022, we plan once again to use the Zoom platform to hold the sessions remotely.

Join from your own home - or elsewhere! These ZOOM sessions will start 8pm on Wednesdays (or Tuesday if marked below).
