Jul - Dec 2018
In pleasant conditions - cloud cover but no rain, the end of the year was celebrated in tradional fashion.
In the large pavillion at Bobbin Head, members and guests talked, shared nibbles and sweets and barbecued. Most later had coffee at the Bobbin Head Inn.

President Kurt gave a brief report, in which he spoke of the huge contribution that Jill and Deidre have made to the Club over many years.These sentiments were very warmly endorsed by all present.

Photographer Don Wo worked tirelessly, and as sweets were handed around, finally could say 'I think I got everyone'. You did indeed 'get us all' Don. Thank you, and in this report we will follow you and your camera.
