Yoga – time update

There has been a small change to Saturday morning yoga at the hall.

It will now begin at 8am, with 9:30am finish time.

I’m sure this will be a welcome change to take advantage of the invigorating morning cool, now that the days are getting hotter. The new start-time will take effect next meeting, Saturday, 28th of November.

Don’t forget to bring a mat.

Yoga Saturday mornings

Just a quick reminder for yoga on Saturday mornings.
A great way to dissolve the tension from the week and start the weekend in a more relaxed way.

It costs $5 for the hall and Andrew is happy for you to pay whatever amount you are able to pay for his very good yoga session. (I pay $10.) Even free if you can only manage the $5 hall fee.

So, get to the hall at 8.50 for a 9am start every Saturday. (8am-9:30am from 28th November onwards.)

All levels will benefit, from beginner to advanced as Andrew gives you the options that you can manage.
So, if you have always wanted to try yoga this is a great opportunity for you.

The sausage sizzle with a quick brainstorming session for future events/activities at the hall is all set for 4pm this afternoon (10th October 2020). Gold coin donation.

Be good to see you there.
See you soon,

Tree Planting Gheerulla Hall 9:30am 28th July

Sunday 28 July 9:30am at the hall

Following last year’s successful planting of amenity trees on National Tree Day, we’ve decided to do it again to finish off the grounds. We have trees. We have equipment. We have dug holes. We have fertilizer and water-holding stuff. Dave has made a garden bed. Everything else will be provided. Now all we need is YOU! Yes, you have the opportunity to make a contribution to the future of the planet by sticking a tree back in the ground at the Hall. Mother Earth will bless you for it, and the faeries and dryads and hamadryads will materialize and give good cosmic energies to the place. You may even see unicorns. Then bring your sausie or vegan pattie and have a BBQ. There may be cake. Or not. But there will be tea and coffee!

Ciao all!


Tree planting at Gheerulla Hall this Sunday

National Tree Day Planting at Gheerulla Hall will be at 9:30am Sunday 28th of July. Dave Brough has been preparing the garden bed in front of the deck and ramp all weekend.

Related, as it is also about beautifying our landscape, the day before (on Saturday 27th evening) Yandina School of Arts will host the next Landscape music event from 5pm onwards.

Gheerulla Hall AGM on Friday at 5pm

Hi All

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is this Friday afternoon 29th of March, about 5pm. The hall is progressing well. Lots of things are happening, but for the momentum to continue the workload needs to be redistributed . The committee only meets four times  a year. Most decisions are made by email .

Be a part of this historic tradition!!  There will be a BBQ afterwards so bring your sossies or tofu and we’ll have a bit of nosh and community group hug.

Download nomination forms for the committee. Or if you can’t open the form just give me (Kathy) the details and I’ll fill it in and you can sign on the night.  Of course just like vampires, we do love a bit of new blood….  so feel free to bring along a few friends.  One has to pay one’s membership by the night to be considered a financial member but you can pay on the night so you’re entitled to vote.  We don’t gerrymander here. Or have Russian input.  And no political party affiliations!!!!  Or campaigning!  You’ll have enough of that in May.

See you on Friday.
