Dear Members,

We have some exciting news…

Poppy Day

This year Poppy Day will be on the 12th of April, we are collecting names of anyone that is willing to spare a few hours to sit and collect. Please contact the office.


We are currently organising and confirming our ANZAC Day celebrations and a newsletter will be sent out in the next few weeks outlining the sequence of events.

Membership Cards

At this stage I am still waiting for our new cards to turn up from Wellington, I expect that they be here in the next few days.


The date has been set for our 2019 AGM as the 28th of April 2019. Details and calls for nominations will follow.


Our welfare committee have been busy over the last few months. If you or someone you know of requires any welfare assistance please contact the office, this could be anything from visiting and having a cup of tea with them to making sure they get to doctor’s appointments to helping purchase hearing aids or glasses. If we can find a way to help, we will!

Please contact Garry should anybody have any questions or require assistance.
