These are the main items of the programme, but they may be subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. Other events will be announced at the meetings and in our newsletters.
Members' evenings are given during the season, for members by members, either in their own homes or in the small hall at Onslow Village Hall. Full details and bookings will be available at regular Club meetings.
We would like to be able to offer a programme of Members' Evenings this season, so if you have digital photographs or slides and have some interesting travels to share, please let us know!
