As a member, you receive communication via email and broadcasts via a members only WhatsApp group, and can join our closed Facebook page.  You will also receive our AAJ-Kal magazine.

All new members are encouraged to attend coffee mornings and get involved as soon as possible.  We have found that the comfort of meeting other like-minded women makes the settling-in process much easier.
