The only exception to this will be our Art Group who will still meet on Thursdays at The Addy during this period.
Our classes will close for the Christmas Period for 3 weeks commencing Friday, 15 December 2017 and reopen on Monday, 8 January 2018.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our members.

All High Five members are invited to join us as we celebrate the festive season this year with a Scottish flavour of music and entertainment by our very own Singers and Scottish Dancers. Maybe you’d like to try a wee reel on the dance floor or join in a Christmas carol or two, or just enjoy socialising with your friends. It’s your opportunity to let your hair down and have a bite to eat later in the afternoon.
