Our next Dining Group will be held at the London Tavern, 414 Hawthorn Road, South Caulfield at 6.30pm, Wednesday 2 May 2018. Parking is available and the tram stops close by. Dining group has been an extremely successful venture – all family, friends are welcome. It is an opportunity for carers, consumers and other family members to meet on an equal footing to share a meal and fun-times.
London Tavern is known for good food, reasonable prices and good ‘specials’ and very substantial main courses at modest prices. These don’t appear on the regular on-line menu, so you’ll have to come along to find out. This is not a subsidised event. Everyone pays for their own meal and drinks.
Please book asap by phoning the office on 9076 4713 or email email@example.com. A message can be left on voicemail if the office is unattended.

Queen Victoria strikes up an an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim.
The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim, a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity. Victoria and Abdul is directed by veteran filmmaker Stephen Frears, of High Fidelity, Dirty Pretty Things, The Queen, Tamara Drewe, Philomena, The Program, and Florence Foster Jenkins previously. The screenplay is written by Lee Hall; based on the book by Shrabani Basu.

Penny and Judith jogging around the oval to the finish line
Penny, Judith, Judi and Molly (her dog) completed the 5km walk to raise funds for Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) on Sunday 28 August. We were spurred on with an enthusiastic pep talk by Professor Jayashri Kulkarni, Director of MAPrc who is very fit and competes in the 10km run.
The competitors are a mix of very serious, fit athletes and those who enter for fun in fancy dress, with parents, children and babies in pushers. We hope next year to encourage more ISFAF members to join us. It’s a great atmosphere and you don’t have to be young and fit to do the 5km walk around the scenic Kew Boulevard course.
Donations to MAPrc can be made via website de Castella Run 2016 for Mental Health
