Pippa Ball

Pippa and Rawson receiving their Life Memberships from President Lynn Butler

It is with immense sadness that members are advised of this mornings passing of our wonderful Pippa after a year long battle with cancer.

Pippa joined our Club with husband Rawson in March 2005 and quickly took on the role of Secretary which she excelled at for the next 4 years. Pippa then took on the role of Membership Officer in 2011, serving for another 4 years and then taking on the coordination of Craft.

In 2010 Pippa was the first recipient of the President's Award and in 2019 was honoured with Life Memership, with Rawson, for her great contribution to our Club.

Pippa was also a very eager participant in many of the Club's activities and was a regular at Craft, Lawn Bowls and Ten Pin Bowling. She was also one of the first to signup for many of our Getaways including Darwin and the Red Centre, Norfolk Island and, earlier this year, Tasmania.

The Club offers its deepest condolences to Rawson and family and to the many friends of Pippa.
Pippa's funeral will be held on Tuesday December 5th at 1pm

EFT Payments

Changes have been made to the process for making an EFT payment to the Club.

All Events will be assigned a 3 character code and this must be used when making an EFT payment to the Club. Members need to enter this code together with their surname in the payment description e.g. 220 Thomas.  EFT Codes will be shown for every Club Event advertised on the website.

Please only pay for one event in a payment or reconciliation becomes very difficult. 

Please DO NOT email Treasurer or Convenor regarding an EFT payment as the Treasurer will notify the Convenor based on the Code entered.

No receipts will be issued by the Club for EFT payments. Your receipt will be your entry on your Bank Statement.
