Are you retired and living on the North Shore?

Would you like to get out and do things but have no one to do them with?

These small group outings mean you don't feel like you are exploring on your own. We have a core group of around 30 ladies who come out regularly giving us the feeling of a travelling social club. (Men are welcome too, ladies just seem to be the most sociable thus far )

If you would like to be added to our mailing list or to find out how to book on to our Couldrey House or Ngatea Watergardens Adventure call and have a chat with Amanda on 218 6254.
