‘Brushy’ needs a new bus driver

Tartan Brushy RSL Day Club will be celebrating 20 years of operation and will be one of the 50 Clubs that operate all around NSW, getting ready for a new start in 2022.

But before commencing in the New Year, the club needs to find a new bus driver to be able to transport its members from their place of residence to the Brushgrove Hall on a Tuesday and return them home in the afternoon.

Long-time bus driver Keith Sneesby has decided to retire and put his feet up (which he truly deserves). This leaves the club in an awkward position, because without a driver, those elderly residence will have no way to get to their beloved club to catch up with their friends, enjoy morning tea and a delicious lunch, play games, and return home safely.

So, anyone out there in the Clarence Valley who is available one day per week between the hours of 8.30am and 2.30pm, Jenny Blanch would love to hear from you, and you can contact her on 0488 497 949 for more information.

The Tartan Brushy RSL Day Club commenced in 2002 and has over 70 volunteers and members and is part of the network of clubs that operate throughout northern NSW extending from Murwillumbah in the north to Grafton in the south and include Yamba, Ballina, Casino, Evans Head, Kyogle, Lismore, and Alstonville. If you add all the years of operation between the Clubs, there is over century of experience to offer those elderly members who attend every week.

If you need further information on any of the above clubs, please give me a call on 0421 429 562.
