mums group outing


Our IOE Mums Social Support outings keep on with the good times for our fun loving ladies.

Last Sunday’s outing was no exception. In spite of the weather (rain, clear, showers, rain) and the tide being too high for our ferry to get under the Yarra bridges, so adding significant walking distance to our boarding berth and considerable time to our  overall schedule, everyone managed to have a good time. Just being able to relax, take time just for yourself (with no children around) and in sociable company makes for a great day!

Unfortunately, because of the bad weather the Williamstown market was just about packed up by the time we arrived. But, prior to ferry departure we fitted in a good browse of the wonderful Southbank Sunday market while some had a bit of a peek at the NGV’s amazing Triennial exhibition.

Still, the fish and chips for lunch were excellent and the inclement weather meant we had plenty of time to chat while sheltering from the rain, giving our new ladies a chance to get to know the ‘regulars’.

Things don’t always go to plan and this was one of those times!

So far this year we’ve had outings to Moonlight Cinema, Yarra Junction’s Blue Lotus Gardens, Akmal at the Comedy Festival and Williamstown with a variety of activities and venues still to come. Our monthly outings always take us to somewhere different and doing different things – so there is always something for everyone.

So ladies, if you’d like a bit of a break and some important time to recharge, socialise and have fun we would love you to join us on Mums Social Support!
