Tuesday Activities

The courses page grew too long to be able to comfortably read it so the content has been divided up into individual days.

There is also a separate page for Woodbridge based activities.

A set of green ##### is a link to the expansion of a multiple presenter course. Click on them to see the extra information.

Have Your Say

Keith Anderson

Members of this lively group discuss a wide range of topics, ranging from politics, world events, science, humanities and religion.... Our rules maintain respect for others opinions, although challenging discussion is encouraged. Each participant has an opportunity to speak without interruption, and may express any discomfort about others opinions. Confidentiality within the group assures members that their opinion stays in the room, thus allowing them to speak freely on the issues involved.
