Redcliffe City Mixed Probus Club celebrates

IT IS true that seniors take every opportunity to enjoy life while they can.

Celebrating Christmas in July is a great excuse to live it up with delicious food, drinks and fun including exchanging presents with Santa in attendance.

So it was in late July that 67 members of the Redcliffe City Mixed Probus Club went by coach to a unique destination - The Fox and Hounds Country Inn at Wongawallan, near Mount Tamborine.

Our first comfort stop/morning tea was the Berrinba Wetlands in the Logan area.

At the wetlands scenic picnic area we started the day well with plenty of delicious eats and champers.

The Fox and Hounds Country Inn was built as an authentic British pub.

The original pub, The Sussex Arms in Kent, was demolished and the full interior contents were transported from the UK to Wongawallan in five containers.

Besides the medieval exterior with the yellow front door, the interior will always be remembered for the extraordinary amount of British memorabilia, old style English furniture and the British ales and great food.

The other big surprise was the Royalty room where we all met a familiar Santa in the presence of statues of the Queen, corgis and a royal guardsman.

It was evident that our Santa enjoyed his role, with our lady members showing special thanks for the presents.

So there it was - another memorable day tour.
