The Dunedin 60+ Club has relocated to a temporary meeting place at the Southern Rugby Club in Helena St.

The rugby club will be home for most of the year while our usual venue at the Blind Low Vision building is renovated and we are grateful to the club for the use of its building.

A thank-you morning tea was held recently for co-ordinators and volunteers. They are the "oil that greases the wheels", without whom the club would not exist.

A shout-out for aspiring singers to join the Sixties Singers as they are short on numbers.

The line-dancing group continues its success, as do the Leisure Marchers, the various walking groups, the movie group and the Culture and Coffee group.

At the next monthly meeting Sally Woods from Community Law will speak on "What we all need to put in place — legal solutions for when we cannot make decisions for ourselves".

This is on Wednesday at the Southern Rugby Club building in Helena St.

Parking is ample around the Southern Rugby Club and bus stops are nearby, in Macandrew and Hillside Rds.

Doors open at 1pm for a 1.30pm start.

Books and puzzles will be set out for any member to borrow and the treasurer and her helpers will be ready to collect your annual subscription of $10.

The suggested koha of $2 at entry will help with the rental and for attendees, may also bring its own "reward".

A special general meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 17, when a new constitution will be considered, required for all incorporated societies under new law. All financial members are invited to attend .

Members are also encouraged to let the club know of any updates to contact details.

Visit to find out about our various groups as well as our activities. The club contacts are Noel, 03 455-2586, or Len, 027 330-1696.
