Club Closing Times for the Festive Season

The Club will close at 4pm on Friday 22 December 2017 and re-open on Monday 15 January 2018. Activity groups can continue to use the Club through this period by arrangement with the front office.

On behalf of the Management Committee I would like to wish you a happy and safe festive season.

Technology courses in 2018

Since 2004 Woden Seniors has been running regular courses in using computers. For the last ten years we have had a wonderful group of dedicated teachers who have given their time and expertise to run 130 six-week or four-week courses, teaching more than five hundred seniors computer skills. It seems that we have just about taught everyone who wants to learn this. In 2018 we will not run regular courses on using computers but will continue to offer courses on using iPads, as it seems iPads are the devices that are handed down or given to the older generation these days!

We will offer a four-week Beginner’s Course on using the Apple iPad several times in 2018. Details are on the ‘Computer Activities’ noticeboard.

We will also offer short courses every now and then on specific topics for those who have a basic understanding of the iPad but want to improve particular skills e.g. email, photos, using the calendar. These short courses will be advertised in the Fortnightly News.

Bridge Classes 2018

These classes recommence on Monday 5th February.

Beginners – 1:30 – 3:30

Improvers – 2:00 – 4:00


A Scrabble group meets on Tuesday afternoons from 2.00 – 4.00 pm in the Anne Murray Room. Drop in if you feel like a game.

ACT Waste Management website

This is a very useful website for information on household and recycling collections. It has an amazing A-Z of recycling for how to dispose of anything safely.

Justice of the Peace
