Our planners have excelled themselves once again and the Term 4 programme includes something for everyone! WCC’s iconic Christmas party will be held on Wednesday 1 December. As numbers are limited for this members-only event, it’s essential that you enrol early if you would like to attend.

We have an absolute talkfest this term. Professor Don Bradshaw will talk about the sustainability of our lifestyle, whether we have lost our sense and if we are in danger of losing our place. Westcoast Gardeners, Julie de Jong, Professor Alan Harvey, Sindy Dowden, Lee Tate, Dr David Cook and the marvellous Bret Christian complete the line-up for the term.

Our outings take us to Lake Leschenaultia and John Forrest National Park, on a two-day Avon Valley and Ghost Tour trip, to the Kalamunda Artisan Market, Ascot Races, Philippa Nikulinsky’s Art Studio, the WA Museum Boola Bardip (back by popular demand), St Mary’s Cathedral, the Art Gallery of WA and, finally, to Mandurah for a fabulous Christmas Lights Cruise.

All our regular favourites return this term, including Westcoast Walkers, Monday Walkers, Chair Pilates & Yoga, Mah Jong, Pony Canasta, Scrabble, Westcoast Book Club, Prose and Poetry, and Knit & Crochet for a Cause. We also have two mobile device sessions this term: an Introduction to myGov and Facebook Marketplace.

Enjoy dinner at Lamont’s in Cottesloe, followed by an Australian Tapas cooking demonstration by Kate Lamont at WCC. Our luncheons include the Royal Perth Golf Club and, for two special Christmas events, the UWA Club. Don’t miss out!

There is a wide range of Music/Theatre events on offer, including three (different) WAAPA performances, two jazz events and a WASO Morning Symphony, as well as WA Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty. For something new and a little different we have Lawn Bowls followed by a Sausage Sizzle, and a Specialised Seniors Gym session. I’m sure you will agree there really is something for everyone.

A big thank you to all for your help and support in these crazy times and for making this such a wonderful year. I also wish all of our WCC family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and may we all return safe and well in 2022.
