IMPORTANT NOTICE - CHANGE OF VENUE AND MEETING
 

OUR MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE AT    

THE PERTH AND TATTERSALLS BOWLING CLUB, Plain Street, Perth.  

ON THE THIRD MONDAY OF EACH MONTH AT 7.30pm

How to get there:
Access to the Perth and Tattersalls Club is from Plain St. Approximately 150 metres from the Riverside Drive Junction and almost opposite Terrace Rd. If you go into the Paid Parking area nearer Adelaide Tce., you will need to come back on Plain St and take the first turn left - this is an unsealed road and will take you to free parking by the club. Notes of special General Meeting held on 12th August (see Read More below) explain why this decision was taken. All members were advised of this meeting, either by email or post, by the Secretary.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - CHANGE OF VENUE


WE HAVE A CHANGE OF VENUE FOR OUR MEETINGS FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS

NEW VENUE - THE ROD EVANS SENIOR CITIZENS CENTRE

cnr. Hay Street and Plain Street, Perth.


The South Perth Bowling Club will be closed for renovations for the next few months, and we will be meeting at the Rod Evans Senior Citizens Centre, cnr Hay and Plain Streets, until further notice. Parking is available at our new venue.
Whilst there is no bar service at the Rod Evans Centre, we are welcome to take our own drinks, but you will need to bring your own glasses.
Tea and Coffee facilities are available - members are asked to bring along supper items as usual for us all to share.

Please remember to come to The Rod Evans Community Centre for your Meeting this month instead of the South Perth Bowling Club.

I recently received an email from the Manager of an Eastern States Nursing Home that has a Welsh resident who is missing Wales. The Manager has asked if there is anyone who would like to correspond with the old gentleman.  If you would like to do so, please let me know and I'll give you some contact details.

Can you help - information about William Ashton Jones


General News

We recently received the following email from Lauren Dillon:
I am looking for information on my 2nd GGrandfather, William Ashton Jones.  I believe he was a founder of the Welsh Free Church, a member of the Leederville Municipal Council and a foreman on the Government railways for 25 years before his death in 1921.  He lived at Afon Wen, 70 Blencoe St Leederville at the time of his death. He was born in Chwilog, Northern Wales on 27th November 1863. He was married to Magdalene Jones. Any information or photos would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

Lauren Dillon

If anyone has any information, please contact me & I will pass on Lauren's contact details.
