2022 July

Our July luncheon saw us celebrating Christmas in July/Winter Wonderland. 

On 5 July 2022 12 Aspley VIEW Club members attended the World of Wonder by Margot McKinney at the City Hall Museum of Brisbane and afterwards enjoyed the company of fellow members for lunch at The Shingle Inn. This exclusive exhibition featuring a retrospective of Margot’s work, unearthed the stories behind the brand and the miracles of nature that make up Margot’s designs. With a lifetime dedicated to luxury, fourth generation Australian jewellery designer Margot McKinney is one of the world’s boldest talents….the very definition of timeless elegance and bespoke excellence. Opulent opals, lustrous pearls and rare exotic gems explore a treasure trove of memories and Margot’s designs transported us to a World of Wonder.

2022 June

Our June luncheon saw us celebrating Getting in Touch with our Learning for Life Students.
