May 2020 onwards



New membership and enquiries:        Ann:  0491 116 084



The threat of corona virus and the consequent government counter-measures are easing, but many of us are in the vulnerable group and are still very wary of mixing with others. Many of us are still observing the social isolation measures we have practised over the last few months.

In light of moves to get the economy rolling again, GRADS committee is currently considering options for a slow resumption of activities.

Members will be notified by email when events resume.

All this government action will be causing disappointment for Club members. However, let us be mindful that a prime purpose of these measures is to protect that segment of the population that we are in. We will continue to monitor the coronavirus situation to determine if we should take further action in the coming months.

And remember there are many ways to keep in touch with friends, such as WhatsApp groups, Facebook, Zoom.

Best Wishes

Plenty of parking in the grounds. Maximum 10 people.

 Wednesday 11.00 – MORNING SOCIAL, various locations
Some of us who have been self-isolating for a few weeks might want to avoid going stir-crazy. Bring a thermos and collapsible chair to a park on Wednesdays in April for some fresh air, a chat, a rant, a walk maybe, whatever. No coffee shops nearby, park benches might be occupied or in the sun or not leave space for our 1.5m distancing – so definitely bring a chair. Primrose Park, Young Street Cammeray, close to the water under the big Moreton Bay Fig.
