What's On in Robertson - Robertson e-news October 2019
 The October edition of the Robertson News is out now.   Download it at or pick up a printed copy from Monday afternoon at the Supermarket, Newsagent, Pharmacist or the CTC (at the box out the front or from inside) and later in the week from Pizzas in the Mist.
 Robertson News is published every 2 months (printed and online).
Storytelling Group Sunday 29 September 3pm- 5pm at CTC@Robertson. Come along to tell or listen. 

Why do people come along? To listen to stories and to tell stories. One person’s stories spark other people to tell their stories in their own time and at their own pace.

What kinds of stories? Life stories, stories of coincidence, amazing stories and stories which tell us we are not too different from one another. ‘Something like that happened to me…’ and off they go on another story.   
Gold coin donation to pay for room hire. Tea and Coffee available. You will be welcome.  Further information Michael Breen ph 4885 2180
