Since April 2014 we have been holding the monthly EMA meetings at our office in Surbiton. We usually start the subcommittee meeting at 11.00 and the main meeting at 1pm. Our office is easy to reach: Surbiton is 15-20 minutes on the main line from Waterloo, and we are less than five minutes’ walk from the station. The office is also next to a large Waitrose, and Surbiton has more coffee shops within 500m of the station than anywhere else in London.
