Bus Trips

The next bus trip is to Jervis Bay Maritime Museum. After the last meeting there was only one ticket left but ask Ann about future excursions, they always take place on the first Monday of the month and are a great day out visiting interesting places.

Our Big Day Out

Last Thursday Maureen and Rudi organised our annual Day Out. What a good job they made of it too.

Sixty members attended the event at Integral Energy Park where they enjoyed plenty of cake, a chicken lunch and even ice cream while Maureen entertained the group with her fascinating quiz.

After the meal most of those present moved outdoors to take part in the light hearted competition of Bocce and throwing the Rolling Pin. A few chose to stay indoors chatting to their friends - all our events are very social.

When it was time to go home no-one wanted to move after having so much fun, never mind hopefully we will all be there to enjoy it again next year.
