The NZ Government has escalated the country’s COVID-19 response to Level 4 effective from midnight Wednesday, 25th March. It is therefore required that the club cancels all meetings and hive days for the time being. We will consider how to deal with the upcoming AGM closer to the time. We will make further announcements via email, the club website and Facebook as the Ministry of Health advice changes. In the meantime, stay safe, stay home, practise 2m social distancing, comply with the restrictions and refer to https://covid19.govt.nz/ for more information.
