Walk With VIEW
2022 Spring Morning
A beautiful day greeted us today for our Walk with VIEW morning. We met at Bell cafe, with Ada being our early bird ready way before everyone. Eight Members went for a walk collecting another lady out walking her dog along the way, before returning for coffee, morning tea and a wonderful catch up.
We had fifteen ladies for the morning all laughing and chatting over morning tea, so a big thank you to Bell cafe for the lovely food, and service. Can’t wait for our next get together.
Recently, Club Secretary Ros, opened her home for a Casserole Lunch that saw members and partners come together for a social gathering. Everyone brought a dish (main or sweets) to share; the food and company together was fantastic.
A wonderful time had by all lots of great feedback given. Many Thanks to Ros for organising and her band of helpers.
At the July meeting, Members enjoyed listening to our guest speakers, Zone Councillor Aletia Norman, and NI01 VIEW Advisor Sally Cronberger, who updated us on all that is happening across VIEW.

Magnificent Coach Tour
Ladies , friends, and partners from several local VIEW clubs joined our Members on a coach trip out to Windy station, for a yummy morning tea followed by informative history from Clare of the Windy station woolshed.
The Woolshed was constructed and finished in 1901 by AA company. An amazing feat when you consider how large the Woolshed is with 44 stands and some of the construction material came all the way from Canada. The first shearing commenced 7th October 1901 and 60,000 sheep had been shorn in this shed by end of 1901.
We travelled on to Gunnedah for lunch at the Railway Hotel, a very popular venue with great food. After lunch we were joined by a lady from Gunnedah Information Centre for a guided tour around Gunnedah before heading back to Tamworth. While travelling on coach we were all challenged with a quiz, to be completed during the day; keeping the grey matter turning.
Many thanks to Barry Black who volunteered to be our coach driver for the day you did a fantastic job and very much appreciated by everyone.
A huge thank you to Lyn and Ellie our program officers for organising such a wonderful day out with lots of great conversations being heard as people connected or reconnected, and with beautiful weather to boot. The raffle held along the way was won by Elizabeth.
The Smith Family Visit in May 2022
Our local Smith Family program coordinators joined us as guest speakers and shared the changes and benefits of the Learning for Life program to the local students during and post COVID-19 lockdown.
At end of very informative presentation, and as can be seen in photo below, Cindi Pearce and Priye Nuni presented President Mareen with a thank you certificate to Tamworth Peel Evening VIEW club for ongoing support to the Learning for Life program.
Members celebrated our 32nd birthday in April, with the theme for the evening Pink and Pearls. The beautiful cake was made by Bev and decorated by Raeleen. Thanks ladies very much appreciated.
We enjoyed great entertainment by our menopausal ladies Sue, Ellie, and Raeleen. Well done ladies. Thanks to Lynette and Ellie for fining us, organising raffles, lucky doors and telling us a funny story.
President Mareen did a wonderful job comparing the evening. A BiG Thank you to our guests from Gunnedah, Tamworth Day and Evening VIEW clubs who came and celebrated with us.
On a sad note we farewelled our caterers wishing them well as last night with us.
