One of them lost his Akubra hat on the way so if you have found it, please get in touch with me and I shall pass on the details to him.

I am heading off to Melbourne to catch up with my bridesmaid of 28 years ago and a bride that I was bridesmaid for 35 years ago.
Whilst there we are having an 'N' party. 'N' for nibblies, negligees, naughty movies and nice friends. It should be good!
I received a lovely email from Felicity and Mark Collins from “Hooked On Books” which is closing in The Village Centre and I am sure she would love me to share it with everyone...
“We’ve owned the Bookshop for 5 years. I’ve worked here for 18 years!!! This particular bookshop has been in the Bay for 25 years. From Angus and Robertson, to Brown Books, then ours as Hooked On Books.
All of my staff and I are off on new adventures, being either different jobs or Uni.
We have had an absolute ball sharing the love of books with our customers, both local and visitors.
We’ve loved watching children go from picture books to chapter books to full-on novels.
My favourite part has always been seeing the ‘happy dance of excitement’ when a book lover buys their favourite author’s new release.
Thank you for you love and support Dawn, we really appreciate it.”
