Hi Gang,
Take a look, it's on google maps and street view as st john, widemarsh 
street, Hereford. Appears to be all on one level and I'm guessing it 
will be accessible.
However, I have doubts about our little group signing up for regular 
booking at £15/hr for monthly meets, and if we do an event we are 
looking at a 3 hour hire - ie £45. (We could hire a ballroom in Bromyard 
for that!) We would need to be sure we can draw a crowd.
Surely there's a pub with a room that would want our trade without 
charging for the space.?
