Club Activities.....

Monthly Meetings
The Northern Koi Club meets monthly from September to April in the Caulfield Road at St. Mark's Parish Hall, Station Road, Swinton, M27 6BY. (This is a change of venue from that which we have used for the last few years. It's a much nicer and much warmer room!) The meetings are held on a Sunday afternoon starting at 2.00pm and finishing at between 4.30pm and 5.00pm with a break part way through for a brew.
