Cheryl Milburn, Publicity Officer of Myall River VIEW Club, said, “Whilst it was a cool day, there was an aura of being able to connect personally with each other.”

“We were only allowed to have 20 members and each brought their own chair, lunch and drinks.”

“We all had a great time discussing some important issues but also just catching up and socialising since we hadn’t seen anyone in so long.”

Maintaining their 1.5 metre distance, members talked about and decided on the Resolutions – Voice of VIEW, which are submitted to the national office and compiled and assessed for discussion and voting at the VIEW National Convention 2021.

“The Resolutions we thought were most important were domestic and family violence, youth homelessness and effective bullying policies within the school system,” said Ms Milburn.

Barbara Ross, Secretary at Myall River VIEW Club, has drafted a letter with the agreed upon resolutions, rationale, intent or outcome to be shared with the VIEW national office.

The final resolutions will be lobbied with the Federal Government to make changes.

“We also held our committee elections for 2021 and we are pleased to announce that we have a full committee going forward,” Ms Milburn said.

“Depending on the future restrictions and regulations, we hope to hold our next members lunch meeting in November at the Tea Gardens Hotel or in the park again.”
