WA Branch Social Calendar

   DIARY OF EVENTS

You are invited to attend a function as a friend to meet our members before joining.

The Society hosts a variety of events based on the preferences of its members and consistent with its aims. You may prefer a traditional Sunday roast and chat with people who share your interests and humour; or lunches or morning teas with interesting guest speakers; or formal events such as the Queen’s Birthday celebration. We also celebrate traditional local events, the Melbourne Cup and Australia Day.  Where practicable, the Society joins with other organisations with similar values to attend each others functions as this offers a wider range of events to a broader range of members.

Event payments may be made payable to the Australia Britain Society WA,  PO Box 3044, YOKINE WA 6060, or via direct transfer to the bank account.
