The Wind in the Willows (play) @ Eltham Little Theatre
Jul 3 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

During 2022, Eltham Little Theatre are offering U3A members half price tickets for their Sunday matinee shows. The dates for which this is applicable for The Wind in the Willows are 3rd and 10th July.

This is a youth production so you may wish to take your grandchildren to see it. It is an adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s original book and includes a number of songs. Tired of spring-cleaning, Mole leaves Mole End and ventures out to the riverbank, where he befriends the resourceful Ratty, the gruff Badger and the infamous Toad of Toad Hall (poop-poop!). Together they explore the Wide World, and the Wild Wood, and try to keep Toad out of trouble!

Here are the mechanics: you book your tickets online. Choose the date, then the number of tickets (adult only, not concession), then enter the ‘202250’ discount code in the ‘gift certificate / promotion code’ box, then pay.

Multi-cultural morning tea @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Jul 14 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are planning to make our morning teas a regular event and this will be the next one.

We have many members who come from different cultures so we would like attendees to bring along a small plate of food reflective of the many different cultures found in Australia. Get out your mother’s old family recipes or, for those cooks that like a challenge, google “cakes/biscuits from different countries” and see what appeals to you.

It will be a great opportunity to socialise and to savour the delights of our multi-cultural society.

Register your attendance by emailing the Office.

Brenda Fitzpatrick on unlikely heroes in unlikely places @ Old Eltham Courthouse
Jul 27 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

This talk will be given by Nillumbik U3A member Brenda Fitzpatrick.

Brenda will talk about the many unlikely heroes that she has met in unlikely places during her work.

Brenda Fitzpatrick has a PhD in Global Politics and is an Australian writer who has spent time in war zones and refugee camps, and has travelled widely in Africa and elsewhere. At one time, she worked for an international humanitarian agency, writing and speaking about human rights – especially about women and girls in war – and reporting on humanitarian needs in places of conflict and disasters. Her book, Tactical Rape in War and Conflict (2016) was about the use of rape as a deliberate tactic of war and how this is a serious human rights issue that needs to be addressed as a threat to human and international security.. Her more recent novel, Gwennie’s Girl (2019) was her first foray into fiction and used stories that she heard and experienced.

Book your place by emailing the Office (office@nillumbiku3a.org.au).

Reg Shiel and Warren Sparrow, from Angel Flight Australia, will discuss what they do and why.

Angel Flight Australia is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights to assist country people to access specialist medical treatment that would otherwise be unavailable to them because of vast distance and high travel costs.

They do hundreds of flights each year in and out of Melbourne and have many volunteers who live in Melbourne.
