Norm Bassford

Happy Birthday, Norm!

At The Greek Club, we know that all birthdays are a reason to celebrate. But when our long-standing member, Norman Basford, dined in our Odyssey Taverna to celebrate his 85th birthday, we knew it was an extra special occasion. We had a chat to Norm about his experiences so far:

What has been your favourite birthday so far?
“My favourite birthday would have to be my 80th birthday. I moved to Brisbane from Sydney about 22 years ago and so we had a lot of friends from interstate come and help us celebrate. It was very special to have people travel so far.”

What is the most valuable thing you have learnt over the years?
“The best piece of advice I can give is to be present with people. People and experiences change over time so you need to meet them where they are at. I think this is something The Greek Club does very well, Andrew selects staff very well and I think people are very comfortable with the staff.”

What birthday meal have you enjoyed most at our Odyssey Taverna?
“The Coral Trout was very special. We always enjoy the food at The Greek Club. My friends who celebrated with me all enjoyed their meals.”

What do you enjoy most about being a part of The Greek Club family?
“I always enjoy the food and the friendly atmosphere at The Greek Club. I have been dining in the club restaurant for over 20 years. I used to work in an office just around the corner so we would all come to the restaurant for lunch and I have just kept coming back.”

Thanks for chatting with us Norm, and a huge happy birthday from all the team here at The Greek Club.
