Courses

There is a monthly General Meeting which takes place at St Andrew’s Croquet Club on the second Thursday of the month. A monthly Current Affairs course also takes place there on the third Thursday of the month. Other courses take place at Berea Gardens’ venues and smaller courses are held in various homes. Some courses are closed due to their nature and limits on accommodation. There are activities involved in pastimes such as Mah jong. The current programme is attached.
