Dear Friends

Happy Easter! Enjoy these days of rest, family, and celebration. (The Centre is closed for Good Friday and Easter Monday.)

I’d like to highlight the wonderful support provided by the Computer Class on Wednesdays at 10 am. If you have issues with email, online banking, Facebook, myGov, scams, organising your photos or files, making video calls, using Zoom, and more, come along! Some problems can be resolved in one visit, sometimes you would need to come along for several visits. Our volunteer mentors are fantastic!

Alternatively, you might like to use the website Be Connected. There are many mini courses offered to learn independently.

There are some issues that are best resolved by someone visiting your home. I have met Angus (Golden Oldies) and Ruth (Anything Tech) and am happy to recommend them

Did you come to the March Birthday celebration? What a terrific day! A lovely meal and wonderful entertainment provided by ‘Humbug’. For April Birthday lunch we are including Bingo. I hope you can come. RSVP essential. Click here or call 62489509.

No lunch and learning in April due to the Anzac Day holiday.

Both Chair Yoga (a second class) and Social Partner Dance for Complete Beginners start 10 April.

Singing for Fun will start after the school holidays. The Bec Taylor School of Music will provide a tutor. I am waiting for confirmation of what day this class will be offered. Standby!

In the near future, 2 armchairs, 2 wooden chairs with arms and a low table will be added to the dining room to create a casual area for coffee or games.

The DeStash was well attended by members of various craft groups. Our craft group was delighted to move some of their stock. Many thanks to the volunteers who helped make the event possible.

The Fete is on 1 June. Serious planning will begin soon. Remember, to establish plants now for the Garden Stall. Start sorting/decluttering for the Trash and Treasure and for Book Stalls. Add the date to your diary!

Best wishes
