Our aim is to provide events and activities for all members of our collective. We also advertise other Finland related events in the area, whether or not they are organised by us. You are most welcome to everything we organise, from picnics in the park (including a game of pesäpallo) to pub nights (for over 18's). If you would like to have a point of contact to feel more comfortable coming for the first time, give our social secretary a shout and they will make sure there is someone to take you under their wing. But we are all very welcoming and friendly, so just say " Finns are such great people" and you are sure to find friends. See below our social calendar and tag along!
Our Finnish Saturday school for children and adults of all levels is held every other Saturday from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the Coniston Community Centre. Please arrive in good time so that we can make a prompt start at the time when your lesson starts. There is a cafe space for parents to socialise in while the children are on their lessons.
