Walkers Programs July to December 2019
The Waverton Hub offers two walks every Monday; a 7.30 Local Area walk and a longer 9.30 Out of Area Walk.
For the 7.30 am walkers, the leader will be at the Waverton Station whatever the weather.
Note that the 7.30am Walks will now only be listed in the Hub’s eNews Newsletter published on Fridays as they will b organised/chosen on an ad-hoc weekly basis.
For the 9:30am walks, walks may be changed to a different one or cancelled at the last minute due to weather conditions or lack of a leader. If so, you will be notified by email on the morning of the walk at the latest, so please make it a habit to check your email before leaving home to join a walk.

SPEAKERS PROGRAM - APRIL
WHAT HAS THE CAMINO TO DO WITH EAST TIMOR?
For more than 10 years Luke has been involved in helping communities in East Timor. In 2017 as a member of Willoughby Friends of Ossu (East Timor), Luke faced his greatest challenge – to walk 800kms on the Camino to raise much-needed funds for a large water, sanitation & hygiene project in Ossu. Hear Luke’s stories from the Camino walk and view a short video of what has been achieved in Ossu.
Hub Walkers 9.30
A scenic walk along the coastline from Curl Curl to Long Reef delighted the Waverton Hub out-of-area walking group yesterday. At the end of the walk the group enjoyed lunch at the Long Reef club. Walks are on Monday mornings. Please come along.
Media Release - Grant to the Hub
A media release went out from Minister Ken Wyatt’s Office on Thursday August 23 2018 announcing a grant of $42,000 which he has made to the Hub. The Minister said the Sydney-based Waverton Hub was an outstanding example of how communities can support older Australians and combat social isolation. He has visited us twice and is a strong supporter of the Waverton Hub model.
