We're Opening - 4 March 22!

 

We're delighted to advise that our Hut will be open on Friday, 4 March 22 with one of our usual meals available.

The Management Committee decided it will be safe to open for business from that date and proposes to provide one full meal per month and three Happy Hours where snacks will be available for purchase. These are expected to include party pies and sausage rolls etc on ad hoc occasions.

The water to the Hut has been turned off for some weeks during the ongoing construction and it's possible that construction will still be underway. The Bilyara Road entrance will most likely be inaccessible, but entry through the Elizabeth Street entrance and a temporary gate situated at your right when you enter the park will be possible. This gate will be opened shortly before 5 pm and locked when the last of us leave the park.

This is an arrangement we have with Barossa Council that will enable members to drive through the park to the Hut. An alternative is to park in Park Street near Langmeil Road and walk into the Hut via the tennis courts, however, the steps into the tennis park aren't easy to negotiate and will be best avoided if you have mobility challenges.

We look forward to seeing you at our first 2022 opening and if there is a significant change in arrangements between now and then, we will advise you.

Annual Subscriptions

Annual subscriptions of $40 for both affiliate and service members were due on 1 Jan 22. If you haven't yet paid but would like to pay by electronic transfer (EFT) now, you will find our bank details by clicking here:

Management Committee Meeting

The sub-branch Management Committee is to meet on 14 February 22 at a yet to be determined location. 

The Committee will determine whether we can safely open our Hut and if so,  schedule opening dates for the first semester.

All members will be advised when the Committee has made a decision which will be largely dependent upon the works program currently underway and whether there is safe and timely access to our Hut.

At the time of posting, it looks as though there is still a lot of work to be completed.

Stay tuned.

The Hut Access and Opening

As The Barossa Council has construction works in progress across the Tanunda Recreation Park restricting access to our Hut, the Committee Executive has decided that it will not be possible to open The Hut until late February, early March.

The Council has said it will approve a limited number of people to access the digital lock on the Elizabeth Street temporary gate and these people will be responsible to open and close the gate on entering and leaving 

Already many of the huge trees surrounding the oval have been removed and a few stumps remain as you can see in the photo below. 

 

Tree removal Tanunda ParkThis extended closure is disappointing for all of us and is also worsened by the current Covid-19 situation and the need to keep ourselves safe. 


The Management Committee will meet in mid-late February to reassess the situation with a view to open The Hut at the earliest. 


A fund-raising Fashion Show being organised for April may be at risk of postponement or cancellation but ANZAC Day is expected to go ahead.
