A big thank you to Ku-ring-gai Council

Our region has been fortunate to receive a community grant from Ku-ring-gai Council totalling $1922.

The generous amount has made possible the purchase of a range of audio-visual equipment for use in a variety of presentations and venues.

Thanks to the Council on behalf of all our members.

Fipple Fluters

The Upper North U3A group known as The Fipple Fluters recently gave a concert at the Hornsby North Baptist Church for its ‘Time Out for Seniors Group’. They had played for this group before. During the past twelve years, they have also given concerts for Probus and played for U3A events at Sydney University, Customs House and Wesley Centre. In addition they have visited a number of local schools to assist teachers in encouraging students to understand the nature and depth of recorder repertoire from mediaeval music to the present day.
