The 2020 year has finished and 2021 Term Dates and the first session speakers will be published here as soon as they are confirmed.

Brighten up your Monday mornings by joining us to listen to our eloquent guest speakers who will entertain you with their interesting, informative, sometimes amusing, but always varied topics.  This has proved to be very popular and even though it is well attended, there is always room for more people.

There are three terms per year with sessions held on Mondays.  Each Monday session has two speakers with tea/coffee served mid-morning after the first speaker.  Click on speakers  for a list of speakers, dates and times.  A paper copy of the list of speakers for a term will be handed out at the first session for each term or can be downloaded from this link .
