Rural Women Celebrate Xmas!

December 19, 2011 10:26 pm

Glenorchy Rural Women recently  had their Christmas function at Punatapu.  

Punatapu was established by Dr Pat Farry and his wife Sue; Pat was a GP in Queenstown for many years and was a passionate advocate of rural health and rural general practice, travelling the world to teach and learn about delivering health services in rural areas, and he died suddenly and unexpectedly a couple of years ago.

Sue has established a Trust, the Pat Farry Rural Health Education Trust, and so Rural Women group members donated to the trust and we had a delicious lunch cooked by Debbie Crompton, one of our Rural Women members, who is a well-known local chef. It was  Debbie’s brilliant idea, and it ticked all the boxes for us, a great day out, fabulous setting, contributing to a rural health trust and wonderful food. Plus they have an amazing art collection and we were lucky enough to have Marilyn Webb the artist with us on the day to talk to us about what we were looking at and her own art and life, so the whole day was really awesome.

A great day had by all!
