New update 9/2/22

We as a committee have bitten the bullet and decided to move ahead with the previous events of Mollymook and Gerroa with Mollymook commencing on the 26/2/22 and Gerroa on the 13/3/22.  We are going to attempt to have groups in isolation with no BBQ or Presentation, at this time.  This is, what we believe, best practice with our vulnerable participants and some volunteers.

General update

So, the last year has seen the Covid 19 hit the organisation to the point where events were all cancelled.  We would like to inform you that as an organisation we have not kept quiet, we have continued to work on equipment and setup of trailers, we have also continued to maintain connections with previous supporters to ensure on our return we are able to continue the community service that we and all, of our volunteers have provided over the last 30 Years.

 

We have Covid Protocols which will be displayed closer to the events depending on the Government restrictions in place at the time.  As an organisation we are aware of the vulnerability of some of our participants and volunteers and at no stage do we as an organisation want to place any individual or the organisation at risk.

The South Coast Branch would like to thank to following supporters that have assisted at the various events that we have held.
