How to get to a Suffolk Mac User Group meeting

We meet every other month on Wednesday evenings - from 7.30pm to 10pm - in the comfortable surroundings of Rushmere Village Hall, very close to Ipswich. 

 Access to the hall’s car park is from Humber Doucy Lane in Ipswich. Head towards Rushmere from the Rushmere Road roundabout on Colchester Road. A quarter mile or so up the road, at the mini roundabout, turn left in to Humber Doucy Lane. The first building you will see on the right is the Rushmere Community Centre (it has a bus stop right outside it) which is immediately followed by the drive leading to the Village Hall.

 If you’re using sat nav, the hall’s post code is IP4 3PD, which will get you to within 200 yards of the building.

Come and see for yourself - you’re assured of a very warm welcome.
