About Warrnambool VIEW

The Warrnambool Day VIEW Club began in 1995 with 20 members.  Today we have 76 members and are proudly preparing celebrations for our 25th birthday next year.  Our membership includes  two original members and many with over ten and twenty years of service, which says a lot for the friendship and support within the club.  

Originally we regularly transported goods to the Collingwood Smith Family centre including toys,  hand knitted baby clothes and rugs made by our members. But as the emphasis of the Smith family changed to education – better a hand up than a hand out -  we have shifted towards raising money while still enjoying the friendship and care of each other, which is the core ethos of VIEW.  

We now proudly support and encourage seven students in the “Learning for Life “Program, which begins at Primary Level and may continue up to Tertiary Level.  

We meet once a month at the Warrnambool Bowls Club, where there is an average attendance of 50 plus. There are two hostesses to greet people and make them welcome. There is a short meeting, and lunch, followed by an interesting speaker or entertainment.   Our dedicated program officers organise two outings each month, which are varied and sure to be a lot of fun. There are two activity groups which take place once a fortnight: Scrabble and A Morning Walk along the Seafront.  There is also a "Loose End” Group - a list of members who provide contact details and their interests and who would be happy to meet for a coffee or a trip to the cinema. The club has an almoner who ensures that the well being of members who may be ill or needing assistance is catered for.  

We are a happy and friendly group of women, who want to make a difference, so join us to meet new friends and have fun, while actively contributing to the value of education.
