Retirees' Club


The Retirees’ Club at Wesley Uniting Church meets on the
second Friday of every month, usually from 5 pm to 7 pm.
(except January and December)

The time was chosen to enable those attending to be available to "baby-sit" grandchildren if so required. There are over 80 people who have attended the meetings in recent times, with an average attendance of 50 to 55.
The meetings take the form of either a speaker or some appropriate activity - and we have a lot of laughs. We conclude the meetings with a shared basket supper brought by those present.
All retired people are welcome to attend whether linked with Wesley or not.
