‘We are a fun-loving group of ladies over 50 and meet once a week on a Wednesday for lunch or other activities such as movies, river trips and horse races,’ Wanneroo resident Valerie Gibson, or Queen Busy Bee, said.

‘The only rule of the society is members must wear a red hat and purple clothing when out with the chapter but for the month of your birthday, you can reverse the colours.’

She said though the chapter was run by the ‘queen’, each member could make suggestions for activities.

The group also participates in Red Hat Society events that involve many chapters from around the State.
