The Shed Current Meeting Program

The following is the future program covering our presentations, trips and activities. If there is an excursion on a particular Friday there may be no one at the Shed.

However we open the Shed on such occasions for those who wish to just socialise rather than go on a trip, so it is likely there will be some people there. Check the most recent newsletter.

For the Walks see further details on the Walking Activities page. For regular morning cycling around Canb with coffee on shores of Lake Ginninderra see the Cycling page.

For an excel version of the program, past and present download HERE. Includes attendances in separate column
