Events

Our full meetings take place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at the Carterton Community Centre. The meeting starts at 2:00pm with notices followed by a talk given by a guest speaker on a subject of general interest. This is followed with tea/coffee and biscuits and a chance to chat.

Prospective members are offered TWO free visits to any of our general meetings. Come along – you will be sure of a warm welcome!

Each Group also meets at least once each month, some meet weekly. Take a look and see if there is anything that piques your interest.
