21 October 

The Time Out for Friends group met around a ‘campfire’ indoors yesterday as the rain pelted down on the small hall’s tin roof.  They sipped hot soup and shared some lunch while some bush poetry was enjoyed.  After a movie, the second-last 2017 monthly gathering was over and they all looked forward to the final Christmas lunch in November.   Brigitte and George – thank you for organising and then re-organising this event because of the inclement weather.

We’d love you to join us any time you can.
