The Society’s building at 1a North Street, Petone, is closed until further notice. Please checkout our Facebook page for any change of arrangements following the easing of restrictions.

This decision has been made based on the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March.

Our accounting system and banking are carried out online, so the Society continues to run.

We thank everyone for your co-operation and hope that you all stay healthy and avoid the virus.
