31 01 2020 SI Fremantle hosted a sunset picnic on the foreshore at East Fremantle celebrating our visitors Jane and David Webb from SI Canterbury UK. They have been in Australia for five weeks visiting friends, Jane was keen to meet up with SI Fremantle members. We had a total of 28 attending from SI Fremantle SI On The Terrace and SI Maylands Peninsula. We also had three prospective members Penny, Louise and Trish who will be attending the AGM on February 10th. The ‘Freo Doctor’ was at gale force but it didn’t dampen spirits as parkas and blankets were fetched from the cars. We had a lovely supper with sausages in a bun (cooked by Gordon), some vegetarian quiche for the special diets and lots of delightful salad presentations from the members. We also had a range of sweet things and o good tipple of whatever took our fancy. Jane and David did a great job of mingling with the locals and a great social time was had by all. They are off home to UK today, so nice to have been able to connect with them. We had a ‘whip round’ for the SI Australia Fire Relief Appeal which was well supported, we have a donation prepared in the amount of $420 and the monies will be directed via SI Clubs in the affected Regions Jane commented that a significant donation was made to the fire appeal by SI Great Britain and Ireland during December, so many thinking of our Australian people in a time of need, thanks to everyone for supporting the cause.
