Welcome to the website of the Welsh Society of WA.

This website was reconstructed as it was getting a bit messy and needed a good cleanout. I have removed a lot of very old content to simplify the cleanup. If anyone wants some old information, photos etc, please let me know.

If anyone wants to help updating the content, or has any stories or pictures they wish to share, please contact me.

 

Diolch

Annual General Meeting - 2014

AGM

PLEASE READ THIS AS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

To all past and present members of the Welsh Society of W.A.

The committee is saddened by the loss of membership due to the unavoidable change of meeting night during the alterations being made at the South Perth Bowling Club and then the high cost of membership to return to the same premises.

After several enquiries at other venues, we have booked the Hall at the Noranda Uniting Church to hold our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 16th April this year and invite you to attend to give us your input as to the suitability of making this our permanent place to hold our monthly meetings.

The address is 79 Camboon Street, Noranda and is accessible from the Freeway via Morley Drive and from Reid Highway via Alexandra Drive.

Looking forward to being able to meet up with all our friends again. 

All positions of the committee will be open on the night and we look forward to your input as to suitable members to take on the vacant positions.

We also need fresh ideas as to what events could take place on the actual meeting nights.

Thanking you in anticipation,

 

Bryce Henley,

Secretary

Welsh Society of Western Australia -Newsletter. November 2013.


As you know, our Meetings now take place at the Perth and Tattersalls Bowling Club, Plain Street, Perth. We had our last two meetings on the second Monday, but in future -----------
OUR MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE THIRD MONDAY OF EACH MONTH 7.30pm. not the second Monday.

Please make a special note of the new Meeting Dates for the 3rd Monday of each month.

18th November 2013

16th December 2013 Christmas Party

NO MEETING January 2014

17th February 2014     Sausage Sizzle
17th March 2014     To be advised
21st April2014 
Annual General Meeting

 

WHY THE CHANGE OF DATE?

Tattersalls Bowling Club Committee have requested us to meet on the third Monday of the month as members are available to open the Club on that evening. If we continued to meet on the second Monday, it would mean staff being called out for special duty, which would entail a much higher nightly fee for us. We do not want to charge our members a higher fee so we have agreed to move to the third Monday.


We hope this will suit all our members and we do not anticipate any further change to the arrangements for our Monthly Meetings.


If you have any queries or concerns, please do contact us:
