COVID19 - Are you prepared for another lockdown?

12 August 2021

With cases of Covid-19 continuing to climb in NSW, there has been a lot of talk here in New Zealand about our strategy should the delta variant make its way into the community. 

Yesterday, Chris Hipkins, confirmed that the alert level settings have been reviewed and we should expect that if there was a chance of an outbreak - New Zealand would likely see a quicker move to level 4.  What this means is that club committees and managers should take the time to review their processes now and put a plan in place.

The low down on providing EV charging

15 July 2021

Given the emphasis that the Government is placing on it, and the release of vehicles such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, it is safe to say the electric vehicles will be playing a larger part in our future.  With that in mind, it may be worthwhile to consider a charging station for your club carpark.  The theory being that visitors could charge their vehicle while taking advantage of the club’s hospitality.

Employment Status - not always a piece of cake

15 July 2021
