RECENTLY the Probus Club of Hawks Nest & District embarked on two fantastic journeys, one for a three night stay in Narrabri and the second one on a day trip to historic Morpeth and Largs, both carefully coordinated by our Social Organiser, Peter Cameron.

The trip to Narrabri on day one toured us through the country towns of Singleton, Quirindi, Gunnedah then on to Narrabri for our three night stay with the first day treating our weary, but excited members, to Happy Hour followed by a hearty dinner served in the restaurant at the Nandewar Motor Inn.

Days two and three showcased the CSIRO Telescope, lunch at Wee Waa, a visit to Mt Kaputar National Park to view Sawn Rocks, a visit to the Artesian Baths in Moree, excursion through the Midkin Cotton Gin ending day three with a Country Music Theme Night with an early start on day four taking in Tamworth, the Rail Museum at Werris Creek and the Wallabadah First Fleet Park then back home to Tea Gardens.

Our trip for the month of May was to historic Morpeth which included a commentary from one of our members who had grown up in the area and who shared some factual information as well as adding some “home truth” anecdotes for some fun along the way.

A five minute trip from Morpeth to the Bushrangers Bar & Brasserie at the Largs Hotel after which time sixty of our members were treated to a sumptuous lunch to be enjoyed with friends of Probus.

Our coach driver, Darren, surprised us after lunch with a visit to the Darrell Lea chocolate distribution outlet at Rutherford where members had the opportunity to stock up on some sweets.

Overall, two wonderful trips in two months and I have to say that is why our club is so popular with 179 members who are keen to enjoy Friendship, Fellowship and Fun.
