Activities

Booking is required for all walks.  To book please contact the leader no later than the Wednesday beforehand for walks on a weekend and much earlier than that for extended walks. Express your interest early to allow dates to be changed if necessary. 

Non-members can find out more about an activity by contacting the Secretary. Before going on an activity, you must agree to certain conditions.When carpooling, we usually meet at the Kepler St carpark near KFC.

Monthly Meetings are usually at 7:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month in the Archie Graham Centre. There will be no such meeting in December.

 Activities program

It's a little tricky devising an activities program in these days of instant lockdowns. One hopes that will be a thing of the past. It goes without saying that if a gap in the program is approaching it will be filled if we are allowed to fill it!
