Social Activities

 Social Events for 2018 

We host several engaging and fun social events each year. The first two events are now open for registration (see registration process below)

The first events are the members’ breakfast, and opera on the harbour. The opera, in particular, was hugely popular last year and early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.

More 2018 activities will soon be advertised.

The registration process – (applies to all events)
