We meet in Martham Methodist Church which is on the left side of Repps Road, opposite Rollesby Road, just before the zebra crossing. Repps Road comes in from the A149. The symbol above is for NR29 4AH, the nearest we can get but slightly to the east of the church - use this post code in your Sat Nav.

Park on the car park just beyond the zebra crossing, on the right.
