29th Birthday Celebrations in April
In April Tamworth Peel Evening VIEW club celebrated our 29th birthday. The theme for the evening was Coming home from the war as Anzac day was the next day.
Our committee did a wonderful job of organising the entertainment which comprised of David Gulliver leading us in a sing along of popular war tunes, with a special appearance from the Andrew Sisters. The room was decorated with memorabilia from the war era, Beverley made the birthday cake and Sally decorated it.
Our beautiful member Beverley Carrett celebrated her 90th birthday on the 3rd January 2019. At our January dinner meeting Helen Dowton gave a small presentation to Beverley on behalf of our club. Both ladies are long time members of VIEW. After the presentation Beverley gave us a very entertaining and informative hasty history of her 90 years
Morning Tea February
In February we met at Pickles and Tea for our start of the year catch-up of all the news over the Christmas break. Many of our members were able to attend and all enjoyed the morning, which included a section of cakes and scones with our tea and coffee.
Making A Difference Award
Helen has been a member of the Tamworth Peel Evening VIEW Club since its inception 28years ago, but she has been a member of VIEW clubs for over 40 years holding many executive positions during this time. Helen is one of those people who opitimise VIEW; she is always encouraging, supporting, & guiding those around her with valuable information about VIEW, The Smith Family and learning for life students that we support. Helen is very creative and is always willing to pass on her skills to others. For the Convention held here in Tamworth in 2007 Helen handmade 1200 paper roses for the Gala night and again in 2017 Helen was instrumental in making the table decorations for the Gala evening, and the floral decorations for the stage during the convention.
Helen has traveled far and wide over the years with VIEW and has been to many Conventions in several states; all the time promoting the interests of VIEW and making a lot of friends where ever she has been. Helen makes anyone she meets feel at ease and always knows how to create fines out of a simple conversation, leaving no one safe on dinner evenings but producing many laughs along the way.
Helen is a very worthy winner of the Making a Difference Award and this year at the National Conference it will be her turn to be recognised for the wonderful contribution she has given to VIEW.
Joyous Christmas 2018
Our final dinner meeting for 2018 did not disappoint. From the minute you walked in you were greeted by Mary (Lyn Arnold), Joseph (Bev Albertson) & baby Jesus, and the room was beautifully decorated by our programme officers Kay Reid and Rosemary Johnston.
We were blessed with many of our members plus those from our surrounding VIEW clubs, and guests joining us to celebrate Christmas. Our chef and assistants supplied a Christmas banquet enjoyed by all. Our Vice President Bev Albertson made a delicious Christmas cake which Zone Councillor Sally Cronberger decorated. The evening was highlighted with David Gulliver leading us all in an entertaining Christmas sing along and a special thankyou to his wife Ellen Mackie who with Rosemary produced the song book.

2018 - Walk For VIEW
The three VIEW clubs (Tamworth Evening, Tamworth Day and Peel Evening) all joined together for our annual Walk for VIEW on Saturday 13th October 2018.
This year the walk was organised by Tamworth Peel Evening club and we were pleased with the support from the other two clubs. The members assembled at Cafe 2340 for the walk and finished back there for a high tea. Two members also celebrated their birthdays on the day.
This is always an enjoyable day and a chance to catch up with all VIEW members, sharing friendship in a relaxed way. We are looking forward to joining together again for our 2019 Walk for VIEW.

September 2018 - Mystery Bus Trip
Tamworth Peel Evening View Club travelled on a mystery bus trip on Saturday 15th September. We were joined by other view club members and some family and friends. The trip started 8.30am from the Old information Centre, Tamworth. The first stop was at the park near the Werris Creek Railway Museum for a delicious morning tea. The group then travelled to what seemed the middle of nowhere to find themselves at The Crofter's Weaving Mill at Spring Ridge and to be greeted at the gate by a large friendly draft horse. The weaving mill was established in 1986 by Maree and Ted Lawson to add value to home grown mohair and was then expanded to weave Scottish tartans because of their diversity, vibrancy and family ancestry. They have created several Australian tartans which have been registered or noted with the Scottish Tartan World Register. Each Tartan as it is woven creates a story, preserving time and producing a specialty item. Ted has the eye for the colours in creating the tartans. The group were amazed at the creations produced and enjoyed the experience and the shopping for special items to take home.
The group then travelled to Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club for lunch which was enjoyed by all, before returning to Tamworth. Along the way the group were tested on their general knowledge and were able to purchase raffle tickets for prizes donated by Margaret Mills. The lucky winners were Adrian McRae and Jeanette Melville. A big Thanks to our Programme Officers, Kay Reid and Margaret Mills, for organising such a fun and friendly day out for everyone.
Annual Gala Conference in June
The Annual Gala Conference for NI01 region was held in June 2018; beautifully organised by our National and Zone Councillors Beryl Pike and Sally Cronberger, and held at the Tamworth Power House Boutique Motel.
On arrival, members and guests were greeted with a delicious morning tea, and as always this event was an ideal opportunity to meet old, and make new friends, from all the many VIEW Clubs around our region.
Our National Vice President Annette Schlafrig attended as did a representative from The Smith Family, with wonderful entertainment being provided by Shelley and Laurie Minson. Fiona Ferguson was guest speaker for the day, giving a wonderful account of her journey through journalism, TV presenter, and now, editor at the Northern Daily Leader.
The day was a great success, with everyone enjoying themselves.
