We continue to look for volunteers to help in the library, the cafe and at specific events.  If you haven’t already offered your services, please do.  It’s a great opportunity to get to know some new people and do something different.  For further information please contact us by the Membership drop down menu above.  We’d love to hear from you.

Please keep the suggestions coming in, we’d appreciate them being constructive and useful. If any of our members have questions they would like answers to, please make a point of talking to one of the Bureau or Conseil members.  We’re all available via the links on this website.  Just complete a contact form and we’ll get back to you.  Suggestions already made are available to see here.
