January 2024

WELCOME to the start of 2024.

Our Roster Team has met and set the 2024 Term1 class program. A copy will be sent to you by email or click here for the timetable. The first Monday of Term 1 will be an enrolment day when you can come into Club Lambton and register for the classes you would like to do.

You will be able to get in early and register for classes by phoning 0478 219 220.

If you want to have an Assistance Session you will need to be a financial club member (cost at this time of the year is $15). You can join/enrol at the Enrolment Day on 29/1/24 and pay the Treasurer in cash, or online, or at your bank. (Don’t forget to put your name and what the payment is for in the deposit details). For our Bank Account details go to  the ‘Membership’ tab or click here. 

Our Wednesday afternoon session at Hamilton Library will be at Adamstown Library for Term 1 due to the temporary closure of the Hamilton Library. The Adamstown Library address is 75 Victoria Street, Adamstown.

My warmest regards
Barry Keen
President
