When does our weekly class meet?
We would normally meet on Tuesday evenings between 7.30 and 9.30 pm.
However, during the coronavirus crisis, we are not meeting. We don’t know how long this situation will continue. When we hear that it is safe to restart, we’ll say so here.
We’re normally open every week of the year except at Christmas/New Year and in some years we close during August.
The doors are usually opened 10 to 15 minutes beforehand. When we start meditating, we close the doors, to avoid disturbing the quiet; this will never be before 7:35. You may get in later than that, but you cannot count on it! By about 7:45, your chances are very slim.
If you’re coming for the first time, it really helps if you don’t come at the last minute – we then have time to get you set up with a mat and cushions, or a chair.
Where do we meet?
As stated above, we’re not meeting at the moment.
When it is safe to retart meetings, we will meet at Lloyd Hall, Brickfield Lane, Outwood, Surrey, RH1 5QX.
Lloyd Hall is at the southeast end of Brickfield Lane, close to the junction with Miller’s Lane; there’s car parking by the roadside and an abundance of yellow handrails outside. Google Street View shows the old hall before it was rebuilt a few years ago – there were no yellow handrails then.
A note to satnav users: the postcode RH1 5QX belongs to the whole of Brickfield Road and your satnav may send you to the middle of the road where there are only fields and hedges. If you’re coming from the northwest, keep going! If you’re coming from the southeast, you have already passed the hall.
Outwood is a quiet village between Oxted, Redhill, Crawley and East Grinstead. In the evenings, the nearest public transport is at Salfords, three miles away. If you can make it to the Hall by taxi or hire car, we can always get you back to public transport after the meeting and you may be able to make arrangements with someone at the meeting who lives in your direction for subsequent weeks.
