To All Members,
As president of our club, after consultation with some members, some emails received and given
the current state of affairs in regard to Covid, I have come to the conclusion that we must cancel the Field Day this coming Saturday.
Ara and the university are suffering an outbreak of Omnicom and Covid, as indeed are a number of people in gathering places both in Christchurch and other towns. Over 100,000 people to date have been recorded with this disease in NZ. Some members are definitely nervous.
As your President I have made the arbitrary call to protect our members: no matter how insignificant the risk is by wearing masks and social distancing.
I alone will be held responsible for this call. Even if you are vaccinated you can still pass this disease on, particularly to children etc.
If you have a bee problem, or wintering down query, call Hive Master Gordon Nairn 0275389568 or any member or myself.
