We hope everyone has a lovely, safe Christmas and New Year. It’s now time to get back to it and we have much to do at the beginning of 2020. We are preparing for our Annual review from the Federal Government which happens every 3 years. Of course, we expect to “pass” with the policy and procedures we have in place, but, it does take much time and energy to prepare for these things.
Even though we asked people not to leave donations over the Christmas break we were inundated when we got back. With lots of new things, we are all looking forward to bumper Jumble and Book sales over the coming weeks.
Come and have a look – every Thursday 10am to 1pm!
Welcome Ross, our new shopper. Ross is also our bus assistant on Tuesday, ring up to book and join the shopping bus and say Hi to Ross!


Fees are:
$3 for a new member
$2 for a renewal.
