It’s time to dust off the picnic set, dig out the thermos,
pop in a bottle of fizz and come along to our old-fashioned
Spring Picnic. We have a delightful setting for setting up picnic
tables adjacent to your PMC and under shady trees.
The day will start with us all meeting at the Studley
Park Boat House Car Park. For those who want a quick cuppa,
the kiosk at the Boat House Café can oblige, or if you wish to get
there earlier for breakfast at the café itself you will be able to
make your own arrangements. The official meeting time is 11.15
am for an 11.45 departure for our picnic venue at Springthorpe
(about a 15 minute drive from Studley Park).
Springthorpe is a beautiful private community in Macleod,
and our picnic venue will be the Springthorpe Common,
which is a well shaded playing field for local residents. Arrangements
have been made for us to park our motor cars, on the Common,
so we can enjoy this wonderful picnic setting to the utmost.
As this is a traditional picnic, please remember to BYO
everything. There is a nearby café where you can obtain coffee, or
lunch if you would prefer not to self-cater. There are also toilet
amenities available at the adjacent Country Club.
This should be a wonderful day to simply relax and enjoy
Melbourne at its best!
The October Newsletter will have more information on
the specific location of our meeting point and picnic venue.
