New Vice-President

Denis Upsall recently advised the Committee of his decision to resign from the Committee and his role as Vice-president.

We are sorry to be losing Denis's services. He has made an outstanding contribtion to the success and stability of the club in recent years, serving as Club Secretary prior to taking on the role of Vice-president. In his time on the committee Denis was instrumental in bringing our IT infrastructure up to date and in implementing and configuring our new web site.  Denis also launched and hosted some of our on-line bridge sessions when Covid struck. Denis was also a very pro-active member of the Premises committee and a valued member of our Directors panel.

Denis's resignation created a casual vacancy on he Committee. Ken Simpson has accepted an invitation from the Committee to take on the role of Vce-presidient and at the Committee meeting held on 12 April his appointment was confirmed.

Welcome aboard, Ken!

To book a COVID vaccination

 

Anyone in the phase 1a or phase 1b should now consider booking a vaccination

Find a vaccination centre near you and make a booking

Phase 1b starts Monday 22 March 2021 for all Australians over 70 and anyone who is immuno-compromised.  Apparently there are 6 million Australians in this category so the moral is to register early, or enjoy a long wait.
