The St Andrew Society

The St Andrew Society of York has a full programme of events each year, not all with a Scottish bias. Last year we enjoyed a trip to the seaside, a coffee morning, a BBQ and even solved a murder mystery.

We also celebrated St Andrew’s Night with a dinner dance too. Still to come are our Burns’ celebration, an evening of entertainment, celebrating the wonders of the Scottish Isles and we round off the year with a Gardeners Questions evening. Our Ladies Circle meets monthly from May to October and we enjoy a delicious lunch in good company and are often entertained by very interesting speakers.

Our new year begins in May and we already have a full programme planned.

If you have an interest in things Scottish and might like to join us or would like to find out more about us, please visit our website: www.yorkscot.org.uk or contact our Secretary on 01904 704014 or via email Standrewyork@aol.com
