September Outing

Our monthly outing for September will be a conducted tour of the new Netcare section of Settlers hospital on Tuesday 8th September. Meet outside the Main Settlers Hospital by 09:45 am. Please arrange to pool vehicles with friends as parking at the hospital is very limited. It should be very interesting to see what facilities this new section of the hospital has to offer.
