COVID Update

Ettalong Beach Arts & Crafts Centre remains in “Lockdown” under current NSW Health Orders. This has prevented us from holding Committee meetings, and running our classes. It also means our Annual Exhibition & Sale (that was scheduled for the last weekend in October) has been cancelled.

Current restrictions mean that Term 4 classes cannot return on time. However further easing of restrictions which are estimated to be announced in late October (once 80% double vaccination rate is achieved in NSW) may make it possible to safely recommence classes from then. We will advise on a start date as soon as we are able.

Many members have remained active with their Arts at home, which has undoubtedly assisted them to survive under lockdown conditions. It also means that our 2022 Exhibition & Sale which is scheduled for October 28th, 29th & 30th October 2022 will be very well stocked.

Our Boobs and Bags group has continued with their great work from their homes providing regular supplies of comfort cushions for post-operative breast cancer patients to Gosford Hospital.

Take care and stay safe and well
