Jenny Scott and Dawn Barter recently spent a lovely long weekend in Merimbula, where the Jazz Festival was on. Jenny's sister from Bairnsdale in Victoria, and her friend were there to attend the festival, and had a spare bedroom in their unit, so asked Jenny and Dawn to visit. They all watched the procession through the streets on the Saturday morning, then the big "Blow", with all the bands combined. The Bay girls travelled home along the lovely coast road, taking in Tathra and Bermagui, on their return, then stopped at Central Tilba for afternoon tea.
Happy birthday to Susan Pinnock of the Bay this week. I hope you had a great day Susan.
Rhondda Carson and her partner enjoyed a slap up fish and chip dinner at Innes' Boatshed during the week. It was 22 degrees and sunny, we can't complain!
Christine Ralston and Cheryl Creswell were both looking very fit and healthy when they participated in the parkrun last weekend. You go gals!
Amanda Bell-Towers and a few friends got together for a reminisce with Leah Holmes ex Maranatha. They had a great night at the Big 4 at Durras. The police were probably called although no one is admitting to that!
It was standing room only for Champagne at the opening of Christine Ewin's agency. The feel of the office presents like walking into her home. Plush lounge area, pink chaired conference room and a wall of photos of the entire team's milestones from weddings to puppies.
There is artwork by Josh Burkinshaw and an original painting especially for the space by well-known artist Di Cox. The back-lit letters on "My Agent" the only telltale sign that you are in a real estate office.
So many locals supported the event, family, friends and clients. Business owners were out in force to wish Chris and the team every success. After 18 years selling real estate locally, Chris simply said "It was time. The puzzle pieces fell into place. I found the right people and I was ready."
Congratulations to Dianne West on her fabulous new shop and location for "Stitches". Stitches was originally situated in a pokey little shop in Bridge Plaza, and was purchased with her sister-in-law some 24 years ago. After five years and a split in the partnership, Di moved the shop to a bigger premises in Bay Centre Plaza opposite A Classy Touch florist. After another 15 years and again outgrowing the premises, Stitches relocated to Fenning Arcade, where it has traded for the past 8 years.
They say a change is as good as a holiday: so why not move again? The move was easier said than done, and no doubt at some stage locals would have seen the girls transporting goods and chattels by the trolley load between the locations. Stitches' new location is where Vaemp once resided, and is the last resting place for Dianne and her staff. Pop in and say hello and see what they have on offer. Here's cheers to the future!
