Out and About

Our schedule of tours and visits has proved very popular with members because they provide further opportunities for socialising and learning about our community in an interesting and fun way.

Over recent times we have visited a variety of sites around Canterbury including: exploration of Ohinetahi in Governors Bay, meeting at the Masjid Al Noor Mosque; rambling through Broadfield Gardens; traipsing around Travis Wetlands; eyeing the art at Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park; and strolling around the SALT area of the CBD.  Your ideas for an excursion will be gratefully received.

To join any excursion,  add your name to the Sign Up Sheet at the monthly meeting, or contact our Excursion Coordinator Ann on 021 120 1528 or  ann.dupuis3106@gmail.com

Here are details of our upcoming excursions for 2021:
