Retired Network Gathering – Wellington

A small group of Retired Network members met at the Foxglove Bar, Queens Wharf, Wellington on Wednesday 14 April. This was a chance for members to engage with new and old colleagues. Stories were told, memories revived, rumours dealt with and new contacts made.

Kevin Bryant (CEO NZVA) was present, so was able to provide a few nibbles and discuss current NZVA activities.

Plans were made for future RVN activities in the next month or so; A Wellington lunch with a guest speaker, a gathering on the Kapiti Coast for the members living there and another Foxglove meeting.

An important topic covered was the NZVA centenary due in 2023. Planning for this is underway and RVN members will be key contributors to this.
