Annual HEN Gathering 2023


What an amazing weekend we had in Drewstown, it couldn’t have been done with out the powerhouse and driving force that is Gabrielle !! We thank you so much for taking this on, it was no small feat after a 3 year break it was really starting from scratch. To John her husband who probably hasn’t seen much of her these past few week with all the organising, thank you for all you did.

Lisa on Social Media – amazing posts on the lead up and all our signage / graphic needs were taken care of, and the million other jobs and general support given.

Jenya kept us on track with the finances, spreadsheets and booking system support. You took on the job not many would and kept the toilets stocked with paper and clean all weekend ! Thank you for this and all the other jobs you do.

Lulu Sinnott server extraordinaire, who jumped in to help the caters feed the masses ! Your Tusla talk had a massive turnout and great feedback. And again all your general help and support on the NCB / committee is really valued.

John “the drumming handyman” – Thank you so much for getting stuck in and being a backbone for the committee all weekend we thank you and your lovely daughters so much for the support and all you did!

Monica, Faith and all the panel speakers – your talks were an amazing success. Thank you for the work that went into them.

Thank you to our other activity volunteers

Sana doing yoga, Tricia who hosted the red tent and girls tent and San doing face-painting and art.

Noah and Deryck for the Nerf war and Sports Day games, that was a great success, and for the hours spent by the gate parking cars and helping people arriving.

Alva and all the other members who brought instruments and brought lovely music to the weekend

Our young kids didn’t let us down with all they did. Vinnie and Sadie on dishes and Sadie’s disco on the last night was a lovely end to the weekend!

To all those who jumped in to help when needed in the dining room and last day clean up it was so appreciated.

I really hope I haven’t missed anyone!

What an beautiful community we have, we’re so happy to bring back the HEN Gathering
