Typical Member Experiences

Our club organises a broad range of activities for members throughout the year, with interesting speakers presenting a broad range of topics at each general meeting plus outings, tours, lunches for members almost every month of the year. This page lists some of the activities and speakers enjoyed by members in recent times.
