Southern Vales VIEW Club


The Southern Vales VIEW Club was formed on 9th June 2006. Our members have great fun socialising whilst committed to providing educational opportunities for disadvantaged children in the southern region by sponsoring four Learning For Life students from Reception to Year 12, through community fund raising, including Bunnings BBQs, raffles, and special events. 

We hold monthly lunch meetings, with interesting guest speakers. Members enjoy regular outings to places of interest, visiting other VIEW Clubs in the South, the annual Gala Day and International Women’s Day, also monthly coffee mornings, Mahjong and a Book Club.

For more information please contact Secretary, Linda, linda.hooper@adam.com.au

2021 August

Our Chocolate and Wine pairing afternoon at Hastwell and Lightfoot Winery. This is a small winery in McLaren Flat.

We had tastings of wine and then you had to place different flavours of choc in your mouth and compare the different tastes.

Not many of us could taste the difference but we still had a fun time. 

12 ladies attended this outing and I noticed a few extra bottles were purchased for later tastings.



2021 Begins

Southern Vales VIEW are up and running for 2021.

We have very interesting Guest Speakers booked for the year and exciting outings planned. We sponsor four students.

Our aim this year is to increase our membership of 28 by encouraging members to bring along a friend. New flyers for distribution have been designed.
