What's on in my area?

Each local ౦ has its own unique timetable of clubs and classes - what runs at one ౦ will be different to a neighbouring one. Examples include:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Bridge group
  • Coffee morning
  • Men in Sheds
  • Photography club
  • Pub lunch
  • Quizzes
  • Tea dance

You may need to book a place in the class and you will usually pay a small amount to take part.
