IN days gone by, a new neighbour would be welcomed to a town or community by a knock on the door and the offer of a cuppa.

Well, not much has changed in the Myall region.

“When all the new people come to Tea Gardens we always get in touch,” Kristine Mobbs told News Of The Area.

Kristine belongs to a group who meets once a month for lunch in and around Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.

The women simply call themselves ‘The Over 60s’.

Like so many residents who now call the Myall area home, Kristine Mobbs is relatively new to the area, re-locating here two years ago.

‘’My father always said to me Tea Gardens is a lovely place, Krissie, and when we drove in here we immediately said this is the place,” Kristine said.

Last Friday’s get together at the Tea Gardens Hotel saw around 30 women enjoy lunch and a good laugh.

“Every month we go to a different restaurant and just have a great time,” Kristine said.

Robyn Nelson has only lived in Tea Gardens for a couple of months.

“My neighbour told me about it,” Robyn said.

“This is my second lunch and I’m gradually getting to know everyone.”

Judy Gilbert is one of the organisers who lets everyone know by email the date and time for the next get-together.

‘’It’s just a welcome to town for anyone who wants to meet new people,” Judy Gilbert said.

“Everyone is welcome”.

She added with a smile, “I said to Emily (Hotel owner) we’re pretty noisy, and she said that’s what we want.”

The next Over 60s lunch is at Curries & More on Friday, 28 July.
