October Holiday Programme at the Atlantic Islands Centre

 A series of “Come and Try it” events will be held to launch the autumn and winter seasons.  Some of these could lead to regular meetings, if there is sufficient demand.

We hope that you will find several events that you would like to attend.  Only the Digital Camera course and the two Pizza Lunch events need prior booking, because places are limited to 12 at each event.
