The Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gateshead Branch draws its membership from within the Metropolitan areas of Gateshead and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Adjacent branches are established at Hexham, South Shields and Whitley Bay.
The Branch holds ten semi-formal meetings, commencing at 1930 hrs on the first Thursday of every month (excepting January (to avoid the usual inclement weather and possible after effects of the festive season !!) whilst the December meeting is an informal, social event), all usually held in the South Gosforth Sports & Social Club, Laburnum Cottage, Percy Terrace, off Station Road, SOUTH GOSFORTH, NE3 1RS – the nearest station on the Metro is South Gosforth (the Sports Club is just over the road). Exact details of how to find the Gosforth Sports & Social Club can be obtained from any of the ‘Points of Contact’ listed below. The Annual General Meeting of the Branch is usually held in February and, at this meeting, the incumbents of the posts of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer for the following year are elected by the membership present at that meeting.
