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 the regular events in our Newsletter, you can informally contact one of our members.
To start we have:
            Bush walking, cycling - Michael
            Dancing, Rock n Roll, Swing, Ceroc - Ann
            Golf mid-week - Noelene
            Open Gardens, public & private -  Noelene
            Theatre - Susan
            Travel - Greg.
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 Committee.
