Volunteers for Mansion House Gardening Trips:

If anyone would like to come with the group to Mansion House usually once a month, please get Jenny Hunter to add your name to the list of gardeners to be circulated with notices. Our trips are usually the last Wednesday of the month, but not always, as we like to time the visit just before a public holiday to have the gardens presented well for visitors. We have a great day out on this magical site and make such a difference to the gardens and reserve.

Future dates for the rest of 2018 are:

  • June 27th
  • July 25th
  • August 29th
  • September 26th
  • October 17th
  • November 21st
  • December 12th

Friendly Care

The idea of supplying baking/meals to members in need has had great beginnings in 2017, and we wish to continue this appreciated service.

We have a core number of generous helpers but can always have more and this spreads the load of the extra cooking.

Currently, we have three members who are in recovery mode and we wish to support them.

Anyone wishing to assist please contact Jenny Hunter on:
09 4210 725 / 021 725 984 or

Those on the list we presume are happy to stay there. Please advise otherwise.

Thank you in advance: Jenny Hunter
