The first bus trip of the year took place on Monday to the Centre for Sustainable Living at Mount Annan. It was a very interesting trip epecially seeing how even a small garden or a balcony can be turned into a productive area.

After visiting the centre we all went to Campbelltown Catholic Club for a meal, a drink and a social get together before returning home. A good day out.

The Meeting

The club’s regular meeting on the 28th January saw the first draw of the new raffle prize of $50. The following draws saw prizes of $20 and $10 handed out. Don’t forget it will be the same again at the next meeting.The next lucky member could be you!

On Thursday 4th February members are invited to come on a self catering picnic to Fitzroy Falls. Members will meet at 8.30 am in the car park before they set off. There should be room for those without their own transport. BBQs will be available at the site or you can bring sandwiches. These events have been very enjoyable in the past.

There was some discussion at the meeting about transport with the result that the club will be writing to our local members of the NSW Parliament as well as the Minister for Transport regarding matters to do with the Opal card, the snail pace of Sydney trains and the overcrowding on the South Coast line.

The club will be holding a free Pie and Peas night on the 26th February at 5 pm (to be confirmed) for its members. Put the date in your diary, it should be an enjoyable get together.

The next meeting is on the 11th February - usual place, usual time – see you then.
