Join us for a casual picnic to celebrate the end of another shiny year surrounded by fellow Browncoats! Meet the NMB team and discover what we have planned for 2018!
We will be setting up on the lawn in front of the Cafe and Garden Shop. Bring a picnic lunch or grab something from the nearby cafe. We welcome members, friends, family and all shiny folk who love Firefly!
