Wellbeing Function Cancellation

By | Breaking News, Whats Happening

Regrettably, following today’s news that the NSW Government has extended the current lockdown by another four weeks, we have decided to cancel our Wellness and Wellbeing Function (Christmas in July) which was re-scheduled to be held on Sunday 22 August 2021.  It does not make sense to book any functions until this lockdown has ended.

If we come out of lockdown earlier than expected, it may be feasible to reschedule the event, but unless we have reasonable freedom to be able to socialise, it is not worth it.

We will refund all those who have bought tickets, but also alternatively, offer them the option of rolling their payment over to the Xmas function and issue them with new tickets.

Refunds obviously will not be available until we come out of lockdown.

Please keep watch on our Webpage and Facebook page for any Sub Branch updates.  A President’s Report will also be available on Monday.

If you have any concerns or issues during the lockdown time, please contact either Vice President George Meier (vicepresident@toukleyrslsb.org.au) or myself (president@toukleyrslsb.org.au) .

August Monthly General Meeting Cancelled

By | Breaking News, Whats Happening

Notice of Cancellation

In view of the current ongoing COVID-19 lockdown situation, I feel that it is prudent to make a call to cancel the Sub Branch General Meeting for next Monday, 2 August 2021.

I will be providing a President’s Report which will be available on Monday on the Sub Branch Website under “What’s Happening” and also the Sub Branch Facebook page.

The Annual Wellness & Wellbeing Function (Christmas in July) which was rescheduled for Sunday 22 August 2021 is very much in doubt at this stage.  However, this will be reviewed in early August.

Ensure that you maintain contact with those who may be struggling, none of us like the situation we are currently in, but there are others a lot worse off than us.

Stay safe and well.

Christmas in August! – An Update

By | Breaking News, News, Whats Happening

Hello All,

Yep, following today’s update from the State Government regarding Covid numbers and the potential for the lockdown to continue beyond Friday the 16th July, our Wellness and Wellbeing Function (Christmas in July) has been postponed until Sunday 22 August 2021.  I feel that even if it did go ahead, that there would be too many restrictions for us to enjoy ourselves.

We will not be issuing ticket refunds automatically. However, anyone wishing a refund should contact the Sub Branch by e-mail info@toukleyrslsb.org.au and arrangements will be made as soon as practicable. Hopefully we will all have a great time on Sunday 22 August.

Best Regards & Keep Safe

Sydney Harbor Dinner Cruise is Cancelled

By | Breaking News, Whats Happening

This activity has been cancelled because of the slow take-up or lack of interest. The bus and boat people were demanding payment in full immediately but we had collected only a small portion of the payments from Sub Branch members. That meant that the Sub Branch could be significantly out of pocket if members did not fully subscribe. In the best interest of the full membership, the trip was cancelled.


Cancelled! –  Bob Swift is seeking expressions of interest from those who would like to go on a Sydney Harbor light show dinner cruise in August 2021. More information concerning cost and date will be available at the next Monthly General Meeting. Anyone who has not already registered their interest can do so by contacting Bob Swift.
