We hold a monthly meeting for retired, or those who consider themselves semi- retired persons, of all callings in our community who would appreciate an opportunity to gain more social contacts by meeting with others having similar interests or in similar circumstances.

Once Wanganui's original Probus Club, the name change to REBUS arose because the Australians franchised the name so large numbers of we Kiwi’s renamed our clubs as "REBUS,” and continued as before.

Our next meeting is at 10 am Tuesday 2 March in the Blind Foundation Building, 102 Peat Street Wanganui.
This month, after a light morning tea our Annual General Meeting takes place where the nomination and appointment of members of the Committee will be decided.

A selection of speakers from the floor will then follow.

The meeting concludes by noon and those wishing to, will then gather for luncheon at Caroline's Boat Shed which is on the left just over the railway line crossing after the Aramoho. Shopping Centre. Please feel free to join us, you would be most welcome.

More information about REBUS Wanganui including details of our very reasonable membership fees may be found by clicking on the Blue Read More link below.

Should you wish to join with us but are unable to on Tuesday, then consider meeting with us for our monthly coffee morning .which this month will be at the Yellow House, corner of Pitt Street and Dublin Road on Wednesday 17th March 2021, at 10am

Wide waist band

Ties are extremely long, for ladies who may wish to tie a bow in front,

Side pocket fitted ( if you are left handed I can make a apron with a pocket to the left )

My daughter wore hers to a 40s dress up party, she went as a Pregnant house wife, the apron is longer but as my daughter has a bump in the front she is wearing it high up, her waist has disappeared, she looks lovely
I recommend not using the apron if you are cooking with fat or oil, but other wise have fun, its there to keep you clean while serving your food out,
Wash and Iron after to keep it looking great

will be making more so please visit me often, and have a look at my Peg Aprons and Rag Bag holders that hang

This year's event runs from March 20 - 30th with the theme being 'The Great Plant Swap' as an easy way for neighbourhoods to grow stronger together.

Here's some ideas for ways you could get involved:

• swap seeds with a neighbour
• gift a plant you've grown to a neighbour
• take some flowers to a neighbour
• organise a produce swap
• share garden tips or recipes for food in season
• create community gardens or berm pollinator pathways
• host an inclusive garden-themed working bee
• a friendly neighbourhood BBQ with homegrown ingredients

The options are endless! At the end of the day, our shared aim is to help bring people together by encouraging intentional connection with our neighbours. Whether that be organising a street party, sharing a cuppa, or simply saying ‘Kia Ora!” to those who live around you, every action helps to create a safer and more connected New Zealand.
