Program changes caused by changing pandemic regulations are updated regularly on the front page of the website. At the time of publication all groups and activities, other than those conducted by Zoom or the sharing of work by email, have been cancelled for the duration of the lockdown. Hopefully this restriction does not have to be extended. Our Covid Safe Plan is continually being revised.
Monday Games has been discontinued, while The News Fact or Fiction will return to meeting at the Seniors Community Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
At this stage, all other courses and activities will stay the same when we open again.
New Courses and Activities for 2022
Do you have an idea for a new course or activity? If so, talk to a committee member who will raise it for you at the next executive meeting. If you would like some help developing a program proposal, contact Bev Lee on 5762 8171 or firstname.lastname@example.org. One idea which we’d like to follow up is a Ukelele group – could you, or do you know anyone who could, teach Ukelele?
