Stargard

Stargard sessions are normally scheduled for Saturdays, because we recognise the needs of members who may have weekday jobs to go to.

In the event of a doubtful weather forecast, events may be either cancelled, postponed or brought forward. If an event is in doubt, before setting out, members should check both here and our social media pages.
