General meeting

I would like to invite everyone interested in getting involved with the Hayek Society to come to the general meeting on Tuesday, October 29th at 7pm in the Mitre pub on High Street.

Even if you cannot commit the time to be on the committee, I invite you to come and tell us what do you think the Society could do this year. The purpose of the meeting will be to talk about our plans for the coming year and to hold committee elections.

If you are interested in getting involved but cannot come to the meeting, please write to me (
