One of the original aims of the 60s-Up Movement was to promote activities for the older person, with each branch free to make their own choices. Torbay Branch gets involved in various ways.
Walking is still a popular activity for our branch and we have an active walking group who meet on Wednesday mornings for their outings.

I have recently returned from Tauranga, where the 30th 60s-Up convention was held. Altogether six members from Torbay went to the conference. Now, so many people think AGMs are boring, but ask any of the members who attended the conference and they will tell you what a pleasant time we all had. The AGM meeting itself only takes up a small part of the event. Attending the conference gives us all
the opportunity to meet members from many other groups. This year it also gave us time to look around Tauranga, as well as going on an optional boat trip around the harbour. The Monday evening dinner was
60s-Up MOVEMENT OF NEW ZEALAND (INC.)
great, with members following a ’30s theme. People really entered into the spirit of the evening and the costumes were varied and interesting – ask Sylvia about hers, as she won a prize. After an enjoyable dinner, we had musical entertainment which was lively and set people’s feet (and other parts) tapping – great fun. The whole
conference is a really e n j o y a b l e experience, and I hope more of you will join us for the 2012 conference in Hastings. Do come.
