GRADS Members’ Special Interest Groups

The Club depends on the members’ input for all our activities.  Events in our monthly Newsletter are all put on by GRADS Members. Some are regular and are repeated each month and others are one-off, prompted by different member ideas.

If you have a special interest outside of the regular events in our Newsletter, you can informally contact one of our members.

To start we have:
            Bush walking, cycling                                  
            Dancing, Rock n Roll, Swing, Ceroc              
            Golf mid-week                                    
            Open Gardens - public & private                      
            Theatre                                              
            Travel.       
We aim to build on this range of special interests from members input.  If you have a special interest and would like to have people join you occasionally, or want to discuss an idea please contact Ann.
