Friendship remains key for Toowoomba’s Old Farts

THEY call themselves the Old Farts Club and come together once a month to discuss all that's been happening in their lives.

Toowoomba men Tom Sweeting, Reece Edwards, former Toowoomba mayor Ross Miller, Tom Bence and Steve Quinn first formed their friendship after hitting it off at the Sporters Tuesdays at the Middle Ridge Golf Club many years ago.

"We talk about everything - but we don't get too involved with politics, none of us can change that - just the fun things we've done in life and are doing now," Mr Edwards said.

"We've all got bucket lists so we talk about them too.

"We're very outgoing and friendly, we tell each other everything that's going on."

The group meets at a different location each month.
