Meetings & Events


16th June Annual BBQ

A balmy summer’s evening, good company and conversation, gorgeous food and drink, and Ben and Dorothy’s exquisite gardens at Highveldt. Welcome to the annual BBQ. Members are requested to pay a small amount to cover the costs of starters and meats and to bring a dish for either the salad or dessert table to share. Arrive between 7.00 and 7.30pm and bring with you a deckchair, plate, dish, glass, cutlery and whatever you want to drink. Even if the weather is less than balmy this is always a fabulous evening.
