ACCU Oxford

The Oxford postcode area has more ACCU members than any other single postcode area. It seemed a pity to me that there was no local group, so a select group met for the inaugural meeting on 25/6/08.

Meetings are held on Wednesdays, usually (but not exclusively) the last Wednesday of the month. Meeting start at 8pm and run until 9:30pm. After which we usually adjourn for a drink and post-meeting discussion.
