Dear friend


I just wish I was an early riser because the Local Walks led by Steve Carberry on Monday mornings always appeal. Steve researches and explores Sydney’s history and many of his walks encompass some of the hidden, and not-so-hidden parts of our city close to home. You can find Steve’s itineraries on the Waverton Hub Facebook page, he posts them a couple of days before the walk. Steve leaves Waverton Station at 7.30 am.


This coming month we will be reminded of First Nations Culture and History with NAIDOC week.


Balls Head (named after Lieutenant Lidgbird Ball of the ship ‘Supply’) has some of the most significant Aboriginal sites in North Sydney. Did you know that in 1964 the Australian Museum discovered a skeleton of an Aboriginal female in a rock shelter? You may have seen the Aboriginal Fish Carving on a rock near the Coal Loader. It is wonderful to have the time to explore our city and our local area.


July is also the month when we get ready for the Hub’s AGM in August. We welcome our new members – I have met some Hubbers at events and look forward to getting to know more over the next few months. The Hub is run by volunteers so if you have time, maybe you are newly retired, and would like to offer your experience to the Hub please let one of us know (you will find the Board members on the Hub website).


Last Tuesday 25 June was our planned Croquet Fun Day at the Chatswood Croquet Club. Sadly we had to postpone the Fun until another day. The Croquet Fun will now take place on Tuesday 16 July from 1.00. We will spend two hours being shown the intricacies of the game of croquet by members of the club, and no doubt finding it is not as easy as it looks! We will catch the train to Chatswood, it is a very short walk from the station. Or you can drive. Details coming, Book with Trybooking to secure your place


Walking is a wonderful way to stay warm, as well as being very good for our health. If you can’t join one of the Hub’s walks I hope you will be able to explore some of our city in your own time.


We have never done a Silly Walk… any takers?


Happy hubbing,


Carol Fallows

Her talk is entitled “Antic’s at the Airport” which is the theme running through a collection of verses  and stories about the many funny incidents that arise from the 100,000 travelers that pass through the Airport each day.

Come and listen to Cheryl at our Waverton Hub Speakers’ Presentation: 2pm at the Waverton Uniting Church Hall, 75 Bay Road, Waverton Tuesday 09 July 2024.

FREE, 7-week falls prevention program

Stepping On is a FREE, 7-week falls prevention program for adults aged 65 years and over, run by NSW Health. ​It teaches participants how to reduce their risk of falling, and maintain their independence.


One of our members has just attended one in Cammeray. As well as teaching stability exercises, it included speaker talks on visual problems in older adults, pedestrian safety, nutrition, home safety including how to set up an arrangement with emergency services to access the home if someone has had a fall, use of MyAgedCare, footwear, & managing medications.


The 2-hour sessions were lively & enjoyable. 

Those who completed it are eligible for a further program, which is currently also free.


It’s excellent, & highly recommended.

There are currently spaces in the winter programs.
