Hastings OWN is situated in the mid North Coast and presently all members reside in Port Macquarie or Wauchope which is about 20 minutes from Port Macquarie.
Our members range in age from the mid-sixties to the mid-eighties. Health plays a big part in numbers at meetings and functions. We meet at the Tennyson Woods Conference Centre, in Lochinvar Street, Port Macquarie. We have ten general meetings a year and a committee meeting bi-monthly. We have a raffle and lucky door prize at each meeting.
Come and meet our members and enjoy the program of activities, including:
- Guest Speakers
- Morning Teas
- Bus Trips
- Trading Tables
- Community Networking
Our monthly morning tea always gets a good turnout, and we also have lunches out after our meetings at various venues. Annually we have a bus trip up the north coast area and we have discovered some fabulous out-of-the way places with fantastic food and hidden treasures. Naturally the company of all your OWN mates makes these adventures worth remembering and talking about for years to come!
Hastings OWN arranges monthly picnics for our members and provide transport for other members who, through disability, are unable to use public transport. This has been appreciated by women who are less mobile. Our members care about each other and check on members who may be sick or having problems.
We also run weekend activities, perhaps a movie, a swim, or a visit to many of the events which are abundant during the summer months in our area. We try to keep the costs down by choosing venues and activities which are affordable for our members.
We may be growing older but we are still growing, and we’d love to hear from you.
