The Men's Group does exactly what it says on the tin. This is an opportunity for men to get together chat, laugh and support one another.
There won't be formal discussions - but there will be opportunities to cement positive relationships with one another.
Outings to date have included a visit to the Hunterian Museum; a trip to A Pie, A Play and A Pint in Oran Mor; and two successful cookery sessions in local high schools.
This is your group, so we welcome suggestions of what you would like to do at future meet ups.
This group takes place once every 2 or 3 months and the dates are on our calendar.
