Parramatta, built on the land of the Darug people, is rich in colonial history and lies at the heart of our region which embraces 31 post codes in  a loose circle from Ermington to West Pennant Hills, Castle Hill, Glenhaven, Kenthurst, Kellyville, St Marys, Fairfield, Lidcombe, Granville plus all suburbs within- such as Bella Vista, Blacktown and Kings Langley. Central Parramatta is  being rebuilt and the new railway line from the Hills area is not only a reality, but a resounding success! Blacktown is also having a facelift. A new Town Centre with multi-story accommodation is under construction.The Greater Western Region is blessed with many beautiful parks and recreational areas.

2020 Holiday – Tamworth
Thank you to Ian Keith for the following: Our day outing to Berry was a lot of fun with good company and chocolate galore at the Treat Factory. (To rotate this brochure download to your computer Viewer, select View in your reader then rotate) A great lunch at the Shoalhaven Ex- Servicemens Club.  One of the best food selections we have seen in a while then finishing off with wine at the Coolangatta Winery.  What a better selection of activities could you ask for.
