COVID-19 AND THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

We take your safety seriously.
In view of the restrictions on gatherings and advice to remain at home for some groups, the Committee has resolved to hold the Annual General Meeting via Zoom.

CLOSURE OF THORNDON SCHOOL GROUNDS

During the level 4 Covid-19 response, the Ministry of Education has asked Thorndon School to close its grounds to discourage congregation of people.
Thorndon Residents are asked to respect this closure for the duration of the emergency and to refrain from using it as an accessway between Hobson Crescent and Murphy St.
