  1. I will be in Dunedin on November 30th 2018 with a party of friends.
    We will be on a visiting cruise ship from Brisbane, Australia.
    As a member of the St Andrews Society of Scotland I will miss the annual dinner in Brisbane but wondered if there might be a similar event in your city ?

    • Dear Malcolm
      The Taieri Scottish Society hold a St Andrews day celebration dinner on 30 November. The venue and details for the 2018 dinner are still to be announced. The time is usually 12 midday. I will post the details when they become available. You will be most welcome to attend. The tickets were $15 last year. We usually also have a Robert Burns lecture. The time is likely to be 5.10 pm but the details have still to be announced.
      Kind regards
      Bruce
