Dear friend


Dear members.


The rain is back just in time for the weekend. Such a pity, but we were blessed with blue skies and sunny days last weekend so I guess we should be thankful for that. I enjoyed my weekend away with my Hash House Harrier mates at Hawks Nest – plenty of walks, food and good conversation. Back in Waverton the sun continued and on Monday the 9.30am walking group undertook another “mystery walk”. This time we travelled to Glebe via train and light rail. We walked the major streets of Glebe and Annandale and enjoyed the local coffee culture, an excellent pub lunch, and the architecture of the period.


A few notices: the Men’s dinner is on again this coming Wednesday 25 May; this event is filling up quickly so book now to avoid disappointment – details in eNews below. On a different note, our Wednesday Strength & Balance class at 8.30am in the Waverton Hall has several spaces available. Why not come along and sample a class; if you like it you can sign up from the next week. Contact the Hub at for more details.


Thank you to Annette Taggart for sending this message and photo (below): “A significant Birthday Celebration took place on Tuesday at Third Rail for Brian B from S&B’s Tuesday Class. It was a great ‘brunch’ with Bubbles & treats enjoyed by all especially Brian celebrating his 10th birthday for the ninth time. Excellent! Keep up the good work.” Congratulations Brian from everyone in the Hub; great to see you are keeping fit and healthy, and enjoying your exercise classes and the camaraderie that goes with it.


Speaking of Bubbles, have you attended the new meeting venue yet – Quattro in Waverton, a wonderful wine bar alongside Waverton station. Do yourself a favour and get along. Enjoy the ambience, nice wines and delicious food. We wish the proprietors every success.


The other night I went to the State Theatre for a Rock-the-House concert. We sure did rock the house with performances by some great Aussie rockers from the 1960s & 70s. Remember Glenn Shorrock, Brain Cadd, Ross Wilson and Russell Morris? Here is a great memory – Glenn Shorrock and the Little River Band performing Reminiscing. Enjoy!

The City Bushman 1892
    It was pleasant up the country, City Bushman, where you went,
    For you sought the greener patches and you travelled like a gent;
    And you curse the trams and buses and the turmoil and the push,
    Though you know the squalid city needn't keep you from the bush;
    But we lately heard you singing of the 'plains where shade is not',
    And you mentioned it was dusty — 'all was dry and all was hot'

    It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Barbara Pik last weekend. For many years she suffered from ill health. May she now rest in peace.

    Barbara's husband Phil has led the Monday out-of-area walks since the start of the Hub even after they moved out of the area and through the ups and downs of Barb's health.

    The family have arranged Barb’s funeral on Wednesday 1 June. This will be a private family affair. Phil has asked that anyone who wishes to watch the service via zoom to email him for the link.

    He has appreciated all the emails that have been coming his way & has said to thank all of you for your kind words.

    A new home for the Sydney Heritage Fleet –
    May 24 – Alan Edenborough

    Sydney Heritage Fleet has long sought a permanent home in Sydney Harbour. Promises and near-misses make for an interesting tale. But the SHF is counting on the search nearing its end. 


    Berrys Bay is a perfect combination of location and heritage infrastructure able to be adaptively redeveloped to provide a cultural tourism hub for the heritage of Sydney Harbour. A new home for the Sydney Heritage Fleet and the creation of a new cultural tourism attraction, The Museum of Sydney Harbour, capitalises on our city’s greatest natural asset - the spectacular beauty of Sydney Harbour.


    The relocation of Sydney Heritage Fleet to Berrys Bay, integrated with the new Museum of Sydney Harbour, provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to provide Sydney with a sustainable cultural tourist attraction and a permanent home for the Fleet’s living maritime heritage and contribution to social capital.


    Alan has more than fifty years involvement with the Sydney Maritime Museum, home of Sydney Heritage Fleet, which was founded in 1965. 


    The meeting will be held at Piato Restaurant 123 Blues Point Road, McMahons Point at 7:00 am for 7:15 a.m. start.
