Last Week's Guests:   Frances Cosway, Interior Designer, White Pebble Interiors,

Frances who studied Interior Design in London and Amsterdam spoke to us about her book - Your Forever Home.   The book details Frances' success in building a self-sustainable and energy efficient home. 

Her family home was the Winner Best Ecological Sustainable Design in Bayside 2015  with its Australian native garden, luxury natural pool and ornamental grape.

The house was a featured in Australian House and Garden October 2016, and Home Design Magazine April 2018, while the main bathroom featured in House and Garden’s Top 50 Rooms for 2015.

Combining the principles of passive solar design with elements of Modernist architecture, this sustainable & environmentally friendly dwelling meets all the modern requirements of a large family home using cutting edge design, superior materials and high end finishes.

Frances had the home renovators in our club green with envy.

What does it mean?

Adopting a Scientist is more than a ‘donation’. It is playing an active part in important scientific research that makes a contribution to advancing our understanding of how the world works and how our minds work within it.

Support for ‘Adopt a Scientist’ will also contribute to promoting careers in Science for young Australians.

All contributions are tax deductible. For your convenience we will send you one receipt at the end of the financial year, for the total amount of your tax deductible contributions.

100% of every dollar pledged goes directly to funding research grants.

Rotary - People of Action...

Rotary Fellowships are groups whose members share a common interest in recreational activities, sports, hobbies, or professions.


International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians


The International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians, formed in 1947 in Great Britain, is recognized as the oldest of the Rotary Fellowships. It was to become the first of many recreational fellowships formed with the World Fellowship Activities of Rotary International.

There are  126 active Rotary yachting fleets in 44 countries (as of June 30, 2017) throughout the world: Argentina, Albania, Australia, Bulgaria, Brazil,  Belgium, Canada, Chile, China (Hong Kong SAR), Colombia, Crimea, Croatia, Czech and Slovak Republics, Ecuador,  Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mali, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, Uruguay and the USA.

We have a world wide membership of nearly 3690 members who are “enrolled” in the said 126 Fleets and in the World E-Fleet, created to connect the mariners that have no other fleet that they can join.




Don't forget to bring in the stamps received on your mail. This will be an ongoing project with proceeds going to Rotary Multi District Trachoma Project. We will have a collection box at the meetings.
