The next meeting of the Storytellers which will be on Tuesday 18th June commencing at 7:30pm.

The June meeting will be a film night beginning with a short introduction to 3 legendary BBC characters on whom the film Codgers is based, namely George Franki, Bill Arnott & Mike Guina.

The film tells the story of five senior Aussie men, four of them mates since war service, meet one morning each week in a gymnasium.  They exercise, chew the fat about their families, laugh, tease and sing. Together, they solve the problems of the world…even if they must agree to disagree.

The next meeting of the Storytellers which will be on Tuesday 16th April commencing at 7:30pm.

In keeping with previous years the April meeting will have an ANZAC DAY theme.
Sandy Longworth will be our ‘Storyteller’ and will talk about:

  • the Turkey and Ottoman Empire leading up to the Gallipoli Campaign
  • the Gallipoli Campaign, mostly narrative slides
  • Sandy’s ‘hero’, his father Roley, and some of his stories (he did not speak about it much, as it was very tough, but wrote a few very informative letters which were not subject to censors when he was in hospital in Cairo)
  • briefly tracing his father’s life connected with Military and medicine.  Roley’s life in a sense was made by WWI . He remained a devoted ‘Digger’ and was the ‘Diggers’ doctor for both WWI and WWII diggers.

The BBC’s one and only A Cappella choir will join in the evening’s fun with a number of songs familiar to everyone.

No tickets required this time!!
