Dear friend


We live in a fascinating city - I think I can say that with confidence as I am a keen walker around our city and I love investigating new places. I have just returned from the Thursday walk to Pyrmont, where following the City of Sydney's history walk, we discovered places we had never been on previous walks to this area. The same can be said for North Sydney's History Walks, a number of which I did during Covid.


More hubbers are joining the walks every week and I am enjoying meeting new people. As well as the walks there is so much more to enjoy with the Hub Activities.


During the week the Hub Board held its first meeting since the AGM and the formation of the new Board. Much was discussed


Barbara and I have been working on broadening the range of activities. You will find new activities and updates on regular ones each week in your newsletter.There are quite a few coming up so I will keep this week's letter to you short.


Happy hubbing,




Here is something of interest;
