The Grandparents Club at Castle Hill RSL. Saturday 22 June. 3pm and 7pm.

Grandparents Club – Written by Wendy Harmer. Finally a show that celebrates Grandparenthood! 90 mins of pure joy that is hilariously funny and touchingly authentic. Written by comedy legend Wendy Harmer with toe-tapping, sing-a-long music from John Field, this is a show that understands how truly Grand life can be! Join Lynne McGranger (Home and Away), Laurence Coy, Andrew James and Meredith O’Reilly in a whirl of stand up, send-up and songas they share their hearts, stories and mishaps over coffee…or was that a gin…in the famous Grandparents Club. All Grands and Great Grands welcome! Tickets can be purchased here.


Pick your own fruit – Mandarin season

Throwing all the kids in the car and heading off fruit picking is a great activity that the whole family can enjoy! It’s a great way to show kids where their fruit comes from while also being out in the sunshine and fresh air. We’re lucky here in the Hills to have fabulous farms right on our doorstep so the journey isn’t too far – as we all know, with young kids there’s no such thing as enjoying a long, leisurely drive!

Here are our tips for places to visit this Winter. Most places charge a price for for what you pick. Also, things change due to seasons and weather, so make sure you check the farm’s website or Facebook page for opening times before you set off. And don’t forget to take your own bags.
