Dear friend

 

Happy new year! I hope you have had a happy and restful start to the New year and are ready for 2024.

 

The Hub is all about community. The Christmas Choir was a delightful way of showcasing the Hub to locals - and to finish a busy year. Now there’s The Case of the Reprieved Bookcase - a wonderful example of how our community can work together.

 

Plenty happening as you can see below - and if you are keen to be part of a class or group take the time to register now as places are limited.

 

The Monday walks have already started so watch your emails if you are keen. Thursdays walks will not start up again until February.

 

One of our new get-togethers for 2024 is the Balls Head Picnic. We know many enjoy getting together with others in the community for a chat and a catchup - so mark your diaries for Thursday February 1. More details below.

 

Other new activities are the Art Class and the Family History Group - see below.

 

I’m looking forward to catching up with many in the new year - please come up and say hello if we have not yet met.

 

Carol Fallows 

President

 

 

 

The Case of the Reprieved Bookcase

Early in January, an alert member of the Hub noticed that Council had pasted a Notice of Removal on the bookcase outside Waverton Cellars - the unofficial street library. Within hours word had spread around the community that a popular place for collecting and leaving books was about to disappear. One of the first to write to the Mayor was Hubber, John Medcalf who was advised that the bookcase could stay while the matter was investigated. Posts on Facebook elicited comments from many in the community, including Hub members Vera and Peter, former Federal member, Trent Zimmerman and former mayor, Jilly Gibson. 

 

Now John was fired up. He arranged with another Hub member to renovate the bookcase and discovered that Waverton Cellars was very supportive of the Street Library. 

 

This was not the end of it. Next the Men’s Shed in Wollstonecraft came on board and have now measured up for a new custom-made bookcase which will meet all the safety concerns that were the reason for Notice of Removal.

 

A Happy Ending - and a wonderful story of our community coming together!

HUB ACTIVITIES

 

CHANGES TO EXERCISE CLASSES FROM JANUARY 2024

The Hub has recently been advised by the Uniting Church that they have increased the hourly rent on the Hall. For this reason we are  advising members that from January 1 2024 the costs of all classes will rise by $1 per session (about $10 - $12 per Term).


We regret having to do this but we do need to cover our costs and our charges remain very reasonable compared to similar classes offered elsewhere.

 

Please also note that from January 2024

  • There are no changes to the class timetables and teachers
  • Bookings are now open
  • Everyone who enrols and attends the Classes must be a paid up member of the Hub.
  • At beginning of the year all classes will be opened to all members. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis with no priority given to current classes.
  • Initially only one Strength & Balance (S&B) class per person
  • If there are class vacancies these will be advertised before the classes begin.
  • We are planning to appoint a Contact member from each class for easier communication with the teacher, the class and the Hub.

 

Please note when BOOKING

 

  • You will be asked to include your Phone Number and an Emergency Contact Number
  • If you are booking for more than 1 person you will be asked to include their Name and Emergency Contact Number
  • If booking for yourself you will need to put an 'X' in the box.

 

 

Please take special care when booking that you are booking for the Class you want 

 

Please ONLY 1 S&B Class per person for now. 

 

 Thanks
