OHSCA Drop-in meetings

Old City Bar in Oaten Hill Place

The monthly Drop-In sessions are becoming well established. These informal meetings offer members the opportunity to meet committee members to provide feedback on OHSCA activities, express concerns/ interests and hear what the committee has been up to on their behalf. They alternate between Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, principally meeting at the Old City Bar in Oaten Hill Place in the back room – or the garden if weather permits. Details will be circulated to members by email beforehand.

Weekly Walking Group

Every Wednesday and Friday morning

a walk departs from the Kent and Canterbury hospital gate at 9.30 am (sharp) returning about 10.30 am. Weather permitting we walk through the orchards and fields, but in winter more frequently on the roads. All are welcome, just turn up and go. We walk at a moderate pace.
