Koliana Winchester invited guests to join her for an afternoon get together at The Golden Ox Margate. The Redcliffe & District Cardiac Group were on her invitation list and were represented well. Some members wearing several hats. It was an excellent afternoon and I’m sure those who attended all left a couple of kilo’s heavier. The finger food and soft drinks were never ending as we were constantly waited on by The Ox’s very efficient and friendly staff. Thank you Koliana and our thanks must also go out to Moreton Shire Council and The Ox for their part in a great afternoon.
The trip to Newstead House turned out to be all we thought it would. A bus load of 24 members enjoyed a great day out. The weather was beautiful and the volunteers who run Newstead House were very friendly and very informative. It was a pleasure to learn the history of the old house.
The most exciting was the ghost room of course but the ghost must have been asleep as nothing out of the ordinary happened.
After a one and a half hour tour the group went to the Breakfast Creek Hotel where everyone enjoyed their lunch, which ranged from an excellent chunky steak pie to steaks, one member treated himself to a steak and lobster dish!!!!
After lunch some of the group decided to walk to the nearby Chinese Temple which was very interesting. The bus left for home 2.15pm and all arrived safely at Redcliffe thanks to Peter the wonderful driver of the Redcliffe Community Bus.
A Fantastic day out has been arranged. So if you can make it, contact Les Bishop,
Don Gailer or Bob Walker?

The Group had their Christmas Party at the Redcliffe Leagues Club again this year and like the two previous years the food was outstanding. A great menu choice and the desserts were to die for.
Those I spoke to were very happy and really enjoyed the day and would like to vote for the same venue next year.
The drawing of our raffle took place and some very happy people got a pleasant surprise for Christmas.
