    › Singing Leaders Resource Day: POSTPONED

    Location: Newstead Community Centre Pyrenees Hwy  3462  , Newstead -15 min from Castlemaine - Open in Google Maps -

    It’s with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our proposed Singing Leaders’ Resource Day in Newstead on April 4th. While we are a small group, and could observe the social distancing guidelines recommended, we feel it is putting people at risk to travel at this time, especially for those coming from inter-state. We’d have to admit we are not an ‘essential’ gathering, if we’re talking about basic survival, even though every singing leader knows how important singing and gathering is to our mental and social health!

    We say ‘postponed’ rather than ‘cancelled' because we’d like to go ahead later in the year, possibly the first weekend in August.  Could you tentatively book that weekend in?  By then we will have a better idea of how the land lies with regard to the health of the nation, and clearer ideas about how to get together safely.
