Western Branch

The Western Branch area spans Hampshire to Cornwall as well as Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and South Wales. We usually hold four meetings a year, in various parts of the country including, occasionally, outside our area. Details of our up-coming meetings are below.

We have just under forty members and always welcome new ones, so if you know of any GTOs in our area that are not yet Members please tell them about the AGTO. The majority of our members are very active with their groups and we try to organise the dates of our Branch events at least a year in advance so that members can make a note in their diaries. These events include a Branch Meeting during which we encourage members to exchange ideas and views.
Full details are published in our quarterly newsletter, Western Ways – the latest copy of which is on this site, or you can contact the Western Branch - see under 'More information' below.
