Gheerulla Hall & Tennis Courts
Moy Pocket Road, Gheerulla
Children welcome — Playground open

Let’s kick off the New Year with a family-friendly fun sports day at Gheerulla Hall! All members, families and their guests welcome.

The day is free to all, so come along and enjoy.

The Tennis Courts will be available for some non-Davis Cup standard tennis (unless our fabulous Tennis Champs play!).

Come to Gheerulla Hall and Tennis Courts at 5.00pm on Australia Day to have fun playing tennis, boules, table tennis, croquet, board games and other games. Or bring your own one to share! If you have any games you want to contribute, or organise, please let us know. As long as it’s fun!

Bring your own food and drinks for a BBQ as well. BBQ will be available, but if you can let us know you’re coming (phone Kathy 045 804 7272) that’s a help with our preparation.

And looking to the future, a General Meeting is planned for 5:30pm 1st February 2017, so mark the date on your calendar. Repairs of the hall are well underway but will be ongoing. The hall at present is suitable for use for classes and workshops run on regular basis by local residents and organizations. For those interested in using the hall weekly or monthly, these arrangements can be discussed at the General Meeting on the 1st February.

The Cent Sale

Friday 9th December 2016

Well, wasn’t the Cent Sale fun!

What a wonderful job Heather Wagner did organising it! Pierre Eiras played beautiful background music on the piano. Dennis Wagner provided a yummy sausage sizzle. Wayne Paulger did a fantastic job calling out the winners and keeping up an entertaining patter while doing so. Everyone wanted to win Joyce Wood’s sponge cakes. The wine and cheese platters were very popular items. Major prizes included a gift tray with a Magnum of Champagne and a leg of ham. Another major prize was a table and chair set. There were so many fantastic prizes!

Four generations of a couple of families attended!

So many people helped with this event — all the locals who donated goods, all the great cooks who donated cakes, slices, and biscuits, all the craft ladies who have been busy making gifts, and all the amazing businesses in Kenilworth, Gympie and Nambour who donated very generous prizes:

General Meeting

Saturday, 18th June 2016

Time to Eat at the “Meet, Greet & Share” dinner following the General Meeting (click to enlarge)

Kathy Mullins hosted some delightful ladies in the “World Knit in Public Day”, which this month was in support of the victims of the Orlando night club tragedy.

The Gheerulla Hall Monthly General Meeting began at 4 pm. – It was a productive and inspiring meeting. The new Management Committee are actively undertaking the administrative and funding challenges due to the major maintenance and stabilising work required to the Hall and amenities. We are appreciative and inspired by the attendance at and contributions to the meeting by so many people; especially by Don and Gail Johnson and Brian Smith, from the Ridgewood Hall (President, Mainstay and Secretary). The guidance and support from Sunshine Coast Regional Council ‘Smarty Grants’ Team, Kenilworth Groups, Local Businesses, our local MP, Peter Wellington and Individuals, has been overwhelmingly supportive and very much appreciated! Thank you all!
