Longtime members Sheila and Bert Foley are moving to Grafton and to celebrate their outstanding commitment of over 10 years to the Club, a farewell barbeque was held on Saturday 13 October following the 3.4km handicap.  

Sheila was on the committee many years ago, initially as treasurer, as well as registrar. Fellow club member Narelle Willems recalls "I knew her before Westies when I worked at Holsworthy Neighbourhood Centre. Sheila was the Director of the pre-school. She did that from about 1990 until she retired. Sheila has always been a doer and a very hard worker, and her time at the Westies has been a time of growth and change. I have always found Sheila to be a person true to herself and very giving."

 Robert Davidson, the Club's Publicity Officer, described the couple as "wonderful, generous people."  Their efforts are appreciated by all the club and we wish them well for the future.
