What we do
The group's meetings and talks resumed monthly at Stony Range Botanic Garden from May 2022. Covid-19 and storm damage to first the Garden on 19 Dec 2021 and then the meeting room in 2022 had thwarted our program! However the members have greatly enjoyed Anne Gray's bushwalks and more recently other excursions. The morning tea or lunch that follows has also given us a relaxing debrief and social time with fellow members.
