Ken Challenor

It’s with great sadness I pass on the news that our member Ken Challenor passed away on Monday.

Ken was the founder of the Southern Highlands branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers and a long-time active participant in all our activities.

He was a much-loved friend to many of us, a mentor and a good-humoured presence at our meetings.

Ken was one of nature’s gentlemen; he will be missed by all of us.

Meetings postponed

Hi members of FAWSH.

Your executive has decided to postpone the AGM and ordinary meeting scheduled for Saturday 14 March 2020.

Many of us are in vulnerable groups so we owe a duty of care to keep you safe.

When the way forward on COVID-19 becomes more clear we will reconvene these two meetings.

Sorry to anyone who has prepared material for presentation and to all of you simply looking forward to getting together.

All items and material can obviously be carried over to the next time we meet.

Robyn has been a member of the Fellowship of Australian Writers Southern Highlands branch so we will welcome her back as a researcher and published author.
