Program

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 Belco & North 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
