Bega Hospital Auxiliary
The Bega Hospital Auxiliary is holding its Spring Street Stall this Friday, October 12, in the Church Street Kiosk.
The usual items will be on sale. As well we have been donated some beautifully knitted baby clothes.
Please come along and support the South East Regional Hospital.
Last week representatives of Bega and Tathra Auxiliaries went out to the hospital where they were shown the Blanket Warmer that both auxiliaries had donated.
The cost was almost $11,000 and the two auxiliaries shared the cost. The staff were very pleased with the warmer.
A number of our Auxiliary members attended the public meeting called by the Board and Executive members of the Southern NSW Local Health District.
We were interested to hear of the latest developments in the hospital. We were particularly pleased to hear of the increase of the number of orthopaedic surgeons.
The next meeting of the Bega Hospital Auxiliary will be held on Friday, October 19, at 10am on the lower level of the hospital. We always welcome new members.
Taiko drumming classes
Anyone who attended the recent Bega Big Groove or the Clean Energy for Eternity human sign in Tathra will know what it’s like to have the earthy sounds of taiko drumming pulsing through the Bega Valley.
Why not give it a go yourself? Have fun learning the basic form, rhythms and techniques of traditional Japanese taiko drumming and join a growing group of spirited Stonewave Taiko drummers who play up and down the Far South Coast.
