March Meetings

 There are two meetings in March (as there are every month) on the 2nd and 4th Thursday.

ie 14th March and 28th March

Our meetings still start at 10:30am in Heininger Hall but be sure to come early to get your free copy of The Senior newspaper, buy your raffle tickets, browse the trade table for bargains and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as you chat to friends.


At the meeting on the 28th March we have a very important speaker talking to us about Seniors' Rights - this should be of interest to all members.

See you there...

The Last Meeting of 2023

 The year has just flown past but the club's last meeting for the year is on the 7th December, usual time, usual place.

The meeting is also your last chance to get your Christmas Lunch ticket. The lunch will be held on the 14th December in the Laurel Room at Heininger House. There is will be a raffle, a singalong and a quiz, it should be fun.

A change in 2024

Remember there is a big change to the meetings in 2024, there will be two meetings each month on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month with the first meeting of the year on 25th January

Please also remember that annual fees are due in January as well, please try to have the right money ($15pp) as it makes life for our membership co-ordinator so much easier. There will be a list of next year's meeting dates available at the last meeting as well as on the Club Activities  page of this web site.

Have a very Merry Christmas, we look forward to seeing you all next year.

A Change for 2024

At a recent meeting a slight change was made to our meeting dates for 2024.

As you probably know our meetings currently occur every fortnight, this poses problems for some members who have groups that meet, for example, on the first Thursday of the month. At certain times of the year they cannot attend meetings because our meetings clash with theirs.

It used to be a thing that our meetings coincided with "Pension Day" but these days pensions are paid out on just about every day of the fortnight so that term has lost its meaning. It was also difficult to know when the first or last meeting of the year would occur.

A change was proposed by the committee and ratified by the members that from 2024 meetings will be held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. The first meeting of the year will always be the 4th meeting in January and the last will be held on the 2nd Thursday in December. It will mean that there will be a couple of less meetings each year because three meetings in a month can never occur - for example this occurred in August with meetings on the 3rd, 17th and 31st of the month.

As stated this will commence in 2024 until then meetings will continue every fortnight for the rest of this year.

Our next meeting is on the 31st August at 10.30am.

See you there...

Next Meeting - 3rd August 2023

 The next meeting is on the 3rd August 2023 please try to attend.

Come early because that is when you get to meet other members, buy a raffle ticket, check out the goods for sale on the trade table and join everyone for a cup of tea and a biscuit.

The actual meeting only usually lasts for about half an hour, the rest of the morning is spent socialising.


The AGM was held at our last meeting - only 25 members attended out of a total membership of nearly 120. This is very disappointing. 

Were it not for a couple of volunteers who put their hand up at the very last minute to take on essential roles in the running of your club the branch came perilously close to closing down.

If there is no committee, there is no club, if there is no club there are no free rooms provided for your hobby or interests and there is no public liability insurance for your protection.

Please make the effort to attend our regular meetings, no one pretends that these meetings are exciting but they are essential for the continued well being of the branch. There are only a couple each month.

You could win up to $60 in the raffle so it is worth your while attending.

Next Meeting - 6th July


The next branch meeting is on the 6th July in Heninger Hall. All members are encouraged to attend.

There will be a demonstration of the defibrillator equipment by a member of council staff.

Come early for a cup of tea and a biscuit, browse the trade table for a bargain and chat to friends.

The meeting starts promptly at 10.30am.

See you there...


The branch AGM will be held on the 20th July.

All positions will be declared vacant please consider standing for a committee position to keep our club strong
