A valued part of The Smith Family

Bellinger Valley VIEW Club


Bellinger Valley VIEW Club was formed in 1985.

We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of women who provide support and friendship for each other while promoting the work of The Smith Family. Our club raises funds to proudly sponsor five disadvantaged students on the Smith Family's Learning for Life program. We take pride in hearing about their educational journeys and achievements. A number of members tutor school children with reading at the local primary school. This is greatly appreciated by the school community.

 In June 2022

Members recently celebrated our 37th Birthday in June with the theme 1920's Flappers Era which was a celebration of 100 years of The Smith Family.

Visitors from other clubs in our NM Area also joined us in celebrating the occasion, Bonville-Boambee, Nambucca Macksville, Nambucca River and Urunga VIEW Clubs. Also, our NM Area Advisor, Cynthia Guyenette, attended which added to our celebration.

Members enjoyed dressing up for the occasion, getting into the spirit of the 1920's with feather boas, furs and long pearl necklaces. 

Bellingen High School String Quartet entertained us with some beautiful classical music and we enjoyed eating our celebration cake.

Thank you to the Old Butter Factory for accommodating us in their new Function Room and providing a lovely lunch for us.
