CANCELLED - ANZAC Legacy Blues Concert
Following advice from the Federal Government to cancel mass gatherings of over 500 people and internal gatherings of over 100 people, and escalating concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have made the decision to cancel a number of large community events from now until the end of May (as a minimum).
We are taking the risk posed by COVID-19 to our community very seriously and closely following the advice provided by the State and Federal Governments to ensure we are working as part of a coordinated approach.
