Activities program

To book for any activity please contact the leader by no later than Wednesday for walks on a weekend and much earlier than that for extended walks. Express your interest early to enable dates to be changed if necessary.        For many of our walks we meet at the Kepler St carpark near KFC. jpgMap 

Non-members can find out more about an activity by contacting the Secretary. Before going on an activity, you must agree to certain conditions.   Contact Secretary   Read conditions for going on a walk

Monthly Meetings are usually at 7:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month in the Archie Graham Centre.
However, a dinner elsewhere will replace the 13th April meeting.
