OUTINGS

We usually start the New Year with an evening meal at local restaurant/pub.  In the summer we have been to local garden centres which involves afternoon tea or sometimes have an afternoon/early evening garden party at one of our members gardens.  These have proved to be very successful and enjoyable social events which the members attend and bring a guest.
