Over the last couple of months, we’ve invested a huge amount of time and energy into overhauling the events area on our website to make it as visually appealing and info-rich as possible to give our members the best odds of getting people to attend the events that are featured on the website. With our new calendar format and submission process, we can better showcase exactly what our members are up to and provide visitors & residents with all of the details they need to know.
