As someone who has always loved to travel and who is closely connected with the travel industry, it is exciting to see many Hub members travelling after Covid. Some are staying close to home, but many are returning to their overseas adventures. I love getting Whats App messages with photos of the travellers and their travels – if you are travelling and happy to share your photos – please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll put a few in the newsletter and on Facebook. Just to get the ball rolling here are a few shots from travellers this year.
For those who have stayed close to home the Hub activities have been buzzing along. These activities need quite a deal of planning and organisation – if you have any questions please contact the Coordinator listed on the website, or contact us through the Hub email.
The Christmas Choir will be back very soon. We also have the bones of a Family History group and the Art Class will re-start in the New Year.
The most difficult part of bringing back old activities and starting new ones is that many have been away – travelling or visiting friends and family they have not seen for some time!
Best regards, Carol

CONGRATULATIONS - HUB ARTIST
Congratulations to Hub Member Julie Keech who has won the “Character of Glebe Award “ at the Glebe Art Show for her pen and wash, en plein air artwork of The Three Bridges, the view from Glebe Point Park.
Julie wrote "Whilst I live in Waverton, I have family and art activities in the Glebe area. 180 artists plus two schools have their work hung.
I am privileged to be able to share my work at this exhibition."
TRAIN TRAVEL - take care
Have you had trouble with Opal barrier - a message from a member who uses a walking stick;
"For the second time, a station barrier closed on me even though I had my stick close to my body. Minor bruise and the station attendant was most solicitous. However he recommended to always use the wide gate which allows more time. He said the gate reads the stick's passage and doesn't wait for the person."
Zumba is a latin-inspired dance workout and Zumba Gold is a lower intensity version. Our instructor, Kirsty Jefferys, introduces easy to follow choreography which focuses on cardio fitness, flexibility, balance and having fun to familiar music. It’s a full body workout yet it feels more like a dance party!
If you would like to find out more and come along for a complimentary taster class on either Thursday at 9.30 or Friday at 10.30 in the Waverton Hall please email Dianne at email@example.com

24 October 2023 – History of Flying Boats – Noel Phelan
During WW I flying boats demonstrated their value for reconnaissance and anti submarine work. All they needed to operate was some flat water instead of an airfield. In the 50’s and 60’s you could travel by flying boat from Sydney to London. We had our own International Flying Boat base at Rose Bay. This was very expensive and had lots of luxurious amenities including beds and mini golf. However the golden years of flying boats ended with the advent of the jet plane.
Come and hear Noel delve into the history of flying boats.
The meeting will be held at Piato Restaurant 123 Blues Point Road, McMahons Point at 7:00 am to 8.30am. Breakfast is served during the talk.
"I'm finding it a really helpful service and am constantly delighted by the notice of new things they are able to recycle. Hope we can spread the word of their free service more widely. You just go to website and sign up. Then they collect two bags for free (or extra bags $5 each) about every six or eight weeks. They take things that are not recyclable elsewhere, old shoes, soft plastics (including ground coffee bags - that's one I find good!) and empty toothpaste tubes, makeup containers etc."
The North Sydney Living Futures Sustainability Festival is a day not only for inspiration and information but for entertainment, fun, networking and socialising. Stage entertainment, workshops, stalls, kids' activities, guided walks and tours are just a few of the things that will be on offer for a great day out at one of Sydney's most iconic harbourside sites.
TRAVEL: Bike valet parking is available for those who choose to ride,
On-street parking will be very limited so try to leave your car at home if possible.
‘The inspiration for this workshop springs from tutor Susi Prescott's decade-long global roller coaster of travel and research, unravelling the mystery and suspense of her family’s history. A copy of Susi's resulting family biography, Beyond the Priest’s Cottage, will be given to everyone enrolled in the workshop.
