THE ongoing success and popularity of the
Men’s Breakfast is prompting local resident Leo-
nie Dunning to offer the same for women in the
This invitation is aimed specifically at women
between the ages 40 to 70 plus, and for those who
wish to enjoy an hour or two of companionship,
conversation and a healthy start to the day.
“I felt that there was a gap for women in this age
group – the young mums can get together at play-
group or at school, and the older women have
their own groups depending on their interests but
there is nothing much for the women who per-
haps are still working and have daytime commit-
ments,” Leonie said.
In seeing the enjoyment that her husband John
gets out of the regular Men’s Breakfasts meetings,
held every six weeks, Leonie thought that this
simple formula was bound to work just as well
So a few months ago she decided to go out for
breakfast with a friend at the same time that her
husband went to Sherwood’s restaurant to meet
his new friends.
Since then these two women have never been by
themselves. The next month and without any ef-
fort or prompting, they were joined by three other
women. At last count, and after word spread, 23
women turned up for the last get together.
Such is the growing popularity, and obvious
need for this type of gathering, that Leonie and
company are now making plans to hold their reg-
ular meetings at the Cheeky Goose café in Cowes.
They feel sure that they will muster the required
number of 10 women to enable them to do this.
Leonie and John are recent arrivals to the is-
land having moved from Melbourne to Cowes 18
Since that time they have become actively in-
volved in the Phillip Island Baptist Church and
are keen to be a part of the wider community.
Leonie’s long term plan is to be more inclusive
to women from across the island.
The Women’s Breakfast is seen as a platform
for women to meet each other on a regular basis,
and to provide companionship for those who may
be new to the island or feeling isolated in some
“Our agenda is for fellowship and companion-
ship. We have deliberately chosen a breakfast
time for women who have work commitments.
“They can relax over breakfast or a coffee and
still in be in time for work.”
Aside from the social enjoyment, the other at-
traction is the flexibility of this group. There is no
committee, annual fees, commitment to attend or
hard and fast rules.
The next women’s breakfast is to be held on Fri-
day, November 4 at the Cheeky Goose café, Cha-
pel Street, Cowes, from 7–8.30am.
This is an open invitation to all women who
would like to come along and join in the group.

Pictured at a recent Breakfast for Women are, from left, Muriel Cole, Helen McCormick,
Coral Fokkens, Robyn Holman, Wendy Henry, Gayle Van Seters, Leonie Dunning and Vic-
toria Fogel. The new concept, similar to the Men’s Breakfasts being run monthly on Phillip
Island, is growing monthly in popularity and an invitation is extended to others to join in.
