Canterbury


The Canterbury Branch covers the whole of the Canterbury area and is led by Colin Cameron.

The branch welcomes new members, for more information please contact the Branch Secretary Rae Magson (Unit 19,10 Creek Rd, Rosebank Retirement Home, Ashburton 7700)

We have 27 members, from Blenheim at the top of the South Island down to Alexandra.    Our main activity is the Hororata Highland Games, where we have a stall and give away free haggis.    This is always popular, and many people ask the question “what is in this?”   We are careful with our replies.  We also attend the Scottish Heritage Council Festival at Riccarton Bush in February.   Another day to give away free haggis.   We consider this to be good publicity and a talking point.   Expenses are covered by a raffle.    We also have occasional lunches out, often at Ashburton.
