Dear friend


About 40 folk braved the chilly afternoon to listen to Lisa Maunsell from talk about enjoying our senior years. Lisa is the spokesperson for the website which is designed to help you assess your own needs, find new activities and interests and take care of yourself. People join the Hub because they are keen to stay involved in their community and look after themselves and others - so it was a committed audience.

There’s a quiz you can do to see just where you are at when you open the website - I recommend you do just that and find out more about what is available to you.

The Liveup program is based on a website - which means that those who are not comfortable with using computer search engines may have difficulty accessing it. There is literature which is available at North Sydney’s Stanton library but not being able to make the most of computers and their associated technology is a drawback for those folk. Realising that computers are a fantastic resource which enables us to access so much information and so many resources is becoming more and more important.

There is help available. If you see Board member and Administrator of our website, Greg Blainey, at Third Rail cafe he is happy for you to ask for his assistance. I am also happy to help if Greg is not available - please ask me when you see me and we can arrange a time. Plus there are local computer classes for seniors - see below for a list. If you have got this far you might like to click on this YouTube link for a very good course - it is an hour-long. See below for details of other classes.

Blackberries were a mobile phone that ceased to be in 2020, but this skit is still very funny.

I am looking forward to the Hub’s theatre party next week, Thursday, April 18 at 11 am. There are still a few seats left for ‘The Great Divide’ David Williamson’s comedy on wealth and human greed starring Georgie Parker. Click on this link to book your tickets. 

In response to demand, we have organised an extra Strength and Balance class. Perfect for early birds or those who want to start the week with a revitalizing exercise class, the new class is on Monday mornings from 7 am to 8 am. There's even time for a coffee before you join the Out of Area Walkers - if you are feeling really energetic!      Click here to enrol

Hope you are enjoying the arrival of autumn as much as I am…
