The year has been a good one for the branch once again, with our membership at 114, we have welcome some new members into our club, have had bus trips to Roxburgh, Catlins, Winton and Lawrence. We had a visit from some North Island Branches when they had a South Island bus tour, our Annual S.B.S. quiz was again successful, have had some very entertaining speakers, 2 very profitable sales tables, Theatre Group organised some outings, “Good Morning Vietnam” and “Mamma Mia”, “Topp Twins” and “Irish Rovers” .Movie Group have seen some good movies but little bit disappointing this year with the lack of good movies coming to our Readings Cinema, Walk Group going well with visits to some interesting places, Cards and Games afternoons are fun, cards do need some new players if you are interested please come along.


All in all a busy and productive year for our Branch and we look forward to seeing you at our first meeting next year.
