COVID-19 Pandemic Compliance

Due to NSW Government restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, our club will hold management committee meetings, general meetings and activities in full compliance with the required COVID safety measures. Morning tea recommenced at the 4th May 2021 General Meeting and is provided in accordance with COVID requirements for the service of food and beverage.

Looking Forward

The committee, concerned about the lack of face-to-face contact for members, is anxiously awaiting the outcome of health decisions on the lockdown to be made on 10th September to enable forward planning for future meetings/outings to occur.

Several possibilities are being considered – lunch at a local club/tavern/restaurant, visits to nursery cafes (e.g. Sancrox, Bonny Hills), chocolate factory at Gosford. It all depends on the restrictions that will be in place, but the most likely outing seems to be a combined meeting and BYO picnic lunch at Wallabi Point.

Cancellation of July, August & September General Meetings

Due to the current new COVID restrictions and the uncertainty that surrounds them, the Probus Management Committee has regretfully decided to cancel the July, August and September General Meetings.
