For the coach to Warrnambool, Sadie needs numbers, names and a deposit of $10 by June 16. To date, there has been little interest so she is not prepared to pay a deposit on a coach if it is not viable. The date is August 4, leaving early from Nhill and picking up at Dimboola and Horsham and returning that evening. Neighbouring groups are welcome and probably non-members or partners as long as she has a name and deposit. Send cheques made out to West Wimmera CWA to Sadie Williams, 26 MacPherson St, Nhill, 3418, and Sadie will return them if it does not go ahead. This trip will be subsidised by the Bunnings fundraising.
