Our next men’s lunch will be held on Saturday 2 November at 11.30am. The speaker is the police chaplain, The Revd Mary Giles. She is an entertaining speaker so put this in your diaries now, cost is $12 for a two course meal.
At our last one Tony Humphreys gave an really interesting speech on “What it is like to be a rugby referee”. It was so appropriate as there was a very important Bledisloe Cup match on that night and the rugby World Cup coming up! The men really enjoyed learning some of the rules of rugby, camaraderie and a most delicious two-course hot meal with a very yummy dessert!!
