At our October luncheon we welcomed guest speaker Peter Newlinds who is the author of a book entitled ‘Around the Grounds’’.  Peter gave us a real insight into broadcasting for the ABC on different sports including all codes of Rugby as well as soccer; however his first love was commentating on cricket.

To keep the fun rolling, last Thursday October 24 we had a most enjoyable day at the museum in Yamba, the volunteers put on a very delicious morning tea and our guide Keith gave an extremely interesting talk on the Yamba Lighthouse and everything else that is significant to Yamba. Many thanks to the museum for our grand tour.

We then went to the marina where we enjoyed a scrumptious lunch and a good chat was had by all.
