As per the note in the photo above, this new medi alert unit has been donated to the Club with the request that it be given to a member who is an age pension recipient and who has need of it. 

Please contact Polly at the Club if this is you or if you know of a Club member who would benefit from this generous gift.


The cover for the Hall 2 piano has gone missing – probably during the Book Fair or clean-up following the Book Fair earlier this year.  The cover is beige coloured, lined and fitted to the piano’s shape, with “FRONT” marked on – yes – the front.  We think it may have been folded up and put away somewhere in the Club where something else could have been put on it, in front of it or otherwise hiding it.  A reward (packet of TimTams) is offered for information leading to the reunion of the piano and its cover.


Thursday afternoons at the Club are the scene of some fun and games – our Games activity is proving a popular, pleasant, and even a bit competitive way to spend some time with friends (bring your own or use some of ours!!!).  Drop in between 12 noon and 4 pm to be in it.
