A General History of the Redlands Branch:
Redlands Branch formerly the Brisbane East and Bayside Branch was formed in 2001 with its first President being the late Bill Angus. In 2005 the branch was divided and a new Branch formed at Wynnum known as “Bayside”, while the old branch was given the new name of Redlands. We have a compliment of 200 active nashos and suporters average around 85 nashos and supporters to our monthly meetings. We usually have a guest speaker, while we also have regular outings covering day trips, 3 day trips, and our lady supporters have a monthly luncheon of their own. Over this time we have participated in various marches, services and assisted in working bees. Some of our members also belong to the Nasho Touring Club while some have served on the State Management Committee
