Next Scrapbooking is on 18 March
Plan to forget about all the Monday chores on 18th March and have a relaxing time at Liz’s, sorting your photos, cropping photos, using correct acid free papers, glue and of course all in archival albums. All these products are so readily available now at Spotlight, Lincraft and some $2 shops at reasonable prices! So make 2019 the year you make a start on those photos you have stuffed away. Start with a simple task – concentrate on a recent holiday, a new grandchild, family or pets over the years. Believe me, it gets you in and before long you will understand the saying “the only time housework comes before scrapbooking is in the dictionary”!!! So don’t forget – Monday 18th March from 10.30am in the Folly at 24 Roselands Avenue, Frenchs Forest. The urn will be bubbling!
Remember – scrapbooking is a “Work of the Heart”

Travel Group – Long Term
Russell Allsop (Click here for phone number)
Smiles worth capturing? We were recently asked if we could provide a photo of our Russia tour group for use in a Beyond Travel Group’s flyer (i.e. a marketing document). So keep your eyes open for some faces you might recognise as you scan through travel publications. It is a photo of us in Suzdal taken after a dinner hosted by a resident named Julia.

Japan in (their) Autumn – November 2019 (Graeme & Russell)
Most travellers have decided to book their flights so we are pretty much set, even though a lot of detail will be worked upon by the Tour Operator over coming months. The Itinerary does contemplate a number of interesting sites with some options in Kyoto and Tokyo to be decided.Standard departure is timed for 17th November 2019 on our way to Fukuoka.
This tour will be developed during 2019 and then more announced in 2019 after the Committee has received and considered a submission.
Croatia and Slovenia – September 2020 (Tony and Russell)
Our likely agent has alerted me to some early information being developed for the cruise component. We expect this will be teased out fully during March or April. If anyone (singles or couples) want to know what is being considered, talk to Tony or Russell please.
By no later than the early months of 2019 we will be wanting to secure some cabin allocation on our preferred motor cruiser vessel and that is expected to be the time for members to consider joining and pay a deposit to be able to hold a cabin.
