Our Regular Monthly Activities
Walking Group Get-together.
An active group that enjoys local walks that are between 4 and 6 kilometres.
Held each Friday morning, normally meeting at Fairy Meadows SLSC
where our walk begins at 9.30am and finishes at approximately 12.00pm.
Various walk options are available to us:
> South through Puckey’s Estate, and enjoy coffee and a chat at Lagoon’s Café afterwards.
> North on the shared pathway to Corrimal beach, and enjoy coffee and a chat at the Bowling Club Café afterwards.
> Hop on the free bus to the Botanical Gardens for a discovery walk through the gardens and lagoon areas, and enjoy a BYO morning tea and a chat afterwards.
Each month at our meeting we have a Guest Speaker. Our Guest Speakers are from all walks of life. They can bring to us some very interesting stories, information that is both relevant and informative, and they entertain us.
Lunch after our Meetings.
After each monthly meeting we all meet for lunch at the local RSL Club and enjoy the club’s lunch specials with the obligatory wine or beer. A great way to enjoy lunch in good company and at a set price.
This includes our regular Club’s Annual Birthday Luncheon, Christmas in July Luncheon, Melbourne Cup Luncheon and Annual Christmas Luncheon. Our Outings Officer also surprises us with organised special lunches at the Scarborough Pub, Gerroa Boat Fisho’s Club and the Headlands Hotel at Austinmer.
Matinee theatre parties at the Lyric Theatre, Capitol Theatre and the Opera House. Also shows at Illawarra Performing Arts and Arcadian Theatre Group. All our theatre groups are daytime matinees.
