5.  Monday 4 September NCMA Tour & Concert

Wednesday 4 September 10.30 am Tour of NCMA & Mini Concert

Featuring Young Entertainers and “Hidden Talent”

This might be an outing you would like to invite friends to, and they would be most welcome. You may wish to go for coffee before or possibly lunch afterwards. I will be exploring several cafes which could be suitable for a group of 10 for lunch and will have these options ready for the next meeting.

6.  October 21 to 24 - A driving adventure to Hanmer with Eric at the wheel

Please make your own accommodation bookings. There are so many options here and you may already have a favourite place to stay. Team up with others to increase the fun and togetherness of this trip. When we know exactly who is going and where everyone is staying, we will endeavour to arrange a suitable meeting place for early evening drinks and nibbles.

7.  Friday 1 November Parks and Reserves with the Council + Walking Tour

8Sunday 17 November - Garden Party - Judy & Bill Unwin



Friday August 16th - Pot Luck Dinner + Fun and Laughter, 6pm at Nick Smith

Community Hall, Annesbrook

We have 56 members signed up for this evening which I know we all look forward to and it should be a good night.

Bring something for the main course or a dessert. Hot dishes should be brought hot as there’s insufficient facilities for warming everyone’s food.

Bring plates, cutlery, glasses and drink. (Remember you take your dishes home dirty, so no-one has to do heaps of dishes.)

Cost is $2.50 per person to cover purchases needed for the evening and a small gift for the use of the Hall.
