The Monday Meet

‘The Monday Meet’ is an initiative of the Benefice of St George and St John, Newbury that aims to bring people together on every third Monday of the month to meet on an informal basis at The Bowler’s Arms and listen to a guest speaker.

The group’s origins stem from the St George’s Men’s Group which started meeting more than 25 years ago and which has now changed to be a more inclusive group open to men and women, widening the audience to include not just members of the Benefice, but anyone from the wider Wash Common community that wishes to attend.

The programme of speakers is varied, and we are always keen to hear from people with ideas for future speakers and events.  If you have suggestions for speakers, please feel free to share your thoughts with either Craig Brown ( or Francis Clayton ( and feel free to join us at our next event.
