We are slowly getting back to normal despite the hiccoughs of Covid 19. It has taken a while and has presented our new President Alma Parr with more challenges than usual. 

In the meantime, however, our knitting group has continued to produce lovely items for families who need them, even doing a swap of gear for a bag of wool and needles. We have begun a new District Project, “Kits for Kindies” which entails collecting good quality or new equipment for disadvantaged kindergarten in Vanuatu.


The Community pantry at the Greytown Medical Centre is once again running at full speed. Sadly it was interrupted by Covid 19, as were many services. So those who can give what they can please continue to be generous, and those who need it, please take what you need. Fresh Choice hase agreed to kindly continue to support this initiative, along with Rotary and the Lionesses. In the words of our Prime Minister, “Please be kind.”

Unfortunately we missed out on our last month’s meeting due to the venue not having enough space for social distancing. But we are happy to advise that our dinner meetings are now confirmed to be held on the third Wednesday of the month (as usual) at Offerings. 

We also have an informal lunch on the last Tuesday of the month and other informal outings. For example a group of members is visiting the Palliser Ridge Wool shop recently featured on Country Calendar. We usually have an interesting speaker. This month it is John Bush from the MensShed. It is a very pleasant night out. 

New members are welcome, please contact 022 653 510
