All funds raised from sales

local residents, and the town
Recently the supper room at
the rear of the hall was beauti-
fully renovated, much to the de-
light of the various user groups
of the area, including Pilates,
yoga and Nia groups.
The hall itself is used for a
variety of regular events such
as annual Christmas Carols,
school events, exhibitions and
weddings to name a few.
Also, the historical society

THE Wonthaggi Life Saving Club needs a new
building so all of the members are doing a bit extra
to raise the necessary funds.
A group of volunteers who you’ll often find in
the club’s coffee shop have planned a not-so -posh
High Tea event at the club hall this Saturday, Janu-
ary 7 from noon to 2pm.
There’ll be a delicious spread and possibly a red
carpet entry, but the ladies insist that if it’s hot,
swimwear will be an acceptable form of attire.
“This will be a fun High Tea,” Joan Scott said. “It
won’t be too serious.
“We don’t expect people to wear hats and gloves.
Just dress to suit the weather.”
There’ll be raffles and plenty of other surprises.
The organisers, though, are serious about pro-
viding access for everyone.
So if you’re concerned about getting there,
don’t be, because a ramp will be installed and
assistance available for those who find it difficult
to navigate the sandy hills and club house steps.
Tickets are $25 and selling fast.
To secure your place, phone Irma on 0419
AS MUCH as local potter Robert Barron en-
joys the beach, he was looking for a break in the
hot weather last week in the hope that holiday-
makers might head into the hills exploring.
There’s markets, cafés, wineries, some ex-
cellent golf courses, galleries and more to be
found out there.
And between Korumburra and Leongatha, at
60 Kardella-Fairbank Road, Kardella, you’ll find
Robert’s Gooseneck Pottery (see www.goose-
neckpottery.com.au/contact.htm for directions.
Robert has only just opened up his out-
door, wood-fired kilns and the latest batch of
plates, pots, urns, decorative pieces and art-
ist creations are absolutely stunning.
“We’ve had a great firing (just before Christ-
mas) and I’m really pleased with how they’ve
“It’s been a bit hot to get away from the
beach but hopefully, when the weather cools
a little, people will come and find us.”
It’s worth the effort.
Robert Barron is one of the region’s fore-
most artisans and a world-renowned expo-
nent of wood-fired pottery.
Take the opportunity of a cool day on the coast
to go exploring. The pottery is open daily but it
might pay to call 5655 2405 before you go.
Never too cool for culture
A cool day’s drive through the hills of South Gippsland should include a visit to Robert
Barron’s Gooseneck Pottery at Kardella where you’ll see the latest pieces from his sum-
mer kiln firing. m160117
