The Social Club will meet up every Thursday from 12 ‘til 2, and the activities will rotate on a monthly basis so the first session of each month will be the Meet Up, the second the Dance Group and so on… You can participate in as many of the activities as you wish – oh and the best part – brews and biscuits are included in the price!
