Coming Events 2021


May 2021

Photo below is of Bev, who has been a member of the Marion VIEW Club for 14 years, celebrated her 80th birthday. She says: 

During the time I have been a member of VIEW I have enjoyed many interesting excursions and made many friends and have been very grateful for the support, kindness and good wishes when I have been in need of help after my 'mishaps'


Jeanette and Sue checking out culinary skills 

On Wednesday, June 9th, twenty-nine of us had a lovely day checking out behind the scenes at the Regency Cordon Bleu Cookery School.   It involved a fair bit of walking around sectors such as the bakery (smelt yummy!) the butchery, cheese making, brewery and aspects of hotel management, so we were ready for a delicious lunch in the Tiros Restaurant.                                                         

It was an interesting and enjoyable outing, thanks to Marie, Maz and Vicki.

Fabulous 2021 International Womens's Day

Marion VIEW Club celebrated a FABULOUS 9th International Women’s Day at the Marion Hotel on Friday 5th of March.

One hundred and ninety one ladies enjoyed a great lunch, and were entertained by guest speaker, Jessica Leo-Kelton, Editor of the Sunday Mail, followed by Alison from Sorbet,  highlighting this season’s fashion with her presentation.  

The day was a wonderful Fund Raiser for the Learning for Life students we support through The Smith Family.                        

We are looking forward to our 10th International Women’s Day in 2022
