Introducing our Leaders 2014/002 Beth Pearce



Whittlesea U3A Walking GroupBeth Pearce






I had the pleasure to go along with Mary Renshaw down to the Norris Bank Reserve in Bundoora. We meet up with the walking group members at the car park entrance just after 9 AM  everyone came together while the leader Beth Pearce started the 1.5Kilmeter walk around the reserve. I must say as a keen walker loved every moment walking with the nicest bunch of people that made me welcome.

I have almost forgot to say that some of the walking group members of Whittlesea U3A provided more than l expected while walking around listening to a great story about the history that surrounds the Norris Bank Reserve in Bundoora. Many thanks to you all for allowing Mary and myself to participate the walk and talk – as we were there to promote this website for all members to know how important to have a chance to socially encourage all Whittlesea U3A members to stay in touch and visit our humble website.
