WCC has been providing learning / leisure activities and volunteering opportunities in the Western Suburbs since 1993. We are able to do so because of ongoing support from the community and would like to take this opportunity to thank some of our supporters.

The following volunteer presenters are thanked for their contribution to the Term 1, 2020 programme – Michelle Grant, Prof. David Mackey, Emeritus Prof Judith Rivalland and Dr Bill Edgar. However, due to Covid-19, our Term 1 programme was cancelled as of 17 March 2020. As a result, a number of volunteers were unable to present – Troy Kirkham, Val Carter, Dr Kenny Travouillon, Jerry Fraser and John Cordin - our thanks to you all and we hope to see you at WCC in the near future.

The Term 2 programme, which was ready to launch, has also had to be put on hold for now. The following presenters have been cancelled, but we thank them for volunteering and hope they will be available when our programme starts up again – Geoffrey Thomas, Chris van Tulnen, Prof Graeme Martin, Marilyn West, Cyril Ayris, Celia Hammond MP, Eversley Ruth Mortlock, Barry MacKinnon and Alex Baglin.

The ongoing support from the Boatshed Market, Linkwest and the Councils/Shires of Cottesloe, Mosman Park and Peppermint Grove is greatly appreciated, as is the assistance of the staff of the Grove Library.

We especially say thank you to the planners who presented the programme in Term 1 and worked to preppare a programme for Term 2 – Anita Norris, Anne McCrudden, Christine Palmer, Connie Chapman, Craig Carter, Dianne Dixon, Dianne Martin, George Sulcs, Helen Wade, Jeanette McQueen, Jeni Owens, Julie Cutler, Maggie Jones, Marg Heyns, Marilyn West, Marion Bruce, Mary Maye, Melissa Frey, Norman Clough, Rebeccah Booth, Sally Hincks, Sandra Henry, Sandra Woodmore and Suzanne Cobb.

Heartfelt thanks and appreciation go to the WCC members who act as volunteers at activities and behind the scenes. We could not deliver the programme without you! We look forward to this group continuing to grow. Special thanks are due to our Management Committee for all the work they have put in to ensuring the ongoing success of WCC.
