Long Jetty Over 50’s Club will not reopen on
Monday, 11th January, 2021 as previously planned.
The new reopening date is still to be decided.
January 4th, 2021: Due to the recent changes in the requirements to operate our club in a COVID Safe way, the Committee of Management this morning decided to delay the reopening of our club to a date to be decided.
This is because of the new NSW requirements for Record Keeping. We are working on identifying & then implementing a system that can do this for us.
Long Jetty Over 50’s Club is now closed for the holiday season, reopening our doors on Monday, 11th January, 2021
Long Jetty Over 50’s Club is STAYING OPEN
November 14th: Operating our club in a COVID Safe way still means we have to continue to limit activities & numbers & has changed the way we do some things. It is our volunteers, who generously donate their time, that enables our members to enjoy their chosen activities & it is so good to see the smiling faces as we settle into this new way of living.
2021 membership is now open
New Members: $5.50
2020 members: No Charge
We will close for our Christmas break from
Friday, 11th December, 2020 to Monday, 11th January, 2021
Our 2021 AGM will be at the club on
Thursday, 25th February, 2021 commencing at 1:00pm
November 3rd: We are now 1 week into our Staying Open Phase. We are doing what we can to keep our Members & Volunteers “COVID Safe” for as long as it takes. To make our rosters appear more healthy than what they are at the moment we need more COVID Marshalls, Duty Officers & Kitchen Assistants. So if you are in a position to do something extra to help us achieve this, please enquire about our training sessions by ringing the Duty Desk on 4332 5522. Little Senior Moments Ed 14 2.11.20 is now on the Digital Talk Page & up until 12 o’clock on Wed 4th Nov you can still book into our new iPhone/iPad course.
October 26th: Our three week trial re-opening is now over & we are ready to move onto the next stage, learning to adapt to the way our club operates in a COVID Safe way. Check out the new COVID Safety in Action @ L/50s Page which lets our Members know how our COVID Safety Plan is being implemented. In Betty’s Special Edition of Little Senior Moments you will read about the need we have for volunteers & of a new activity that is being planned. Check out our Activities Program or you can go to the Activities Page for more details.
October 20th: Yesterday the Committee of Management held it’s very important meeting & made the decision to stay open after the current trial period ends on Friday 23rd Oct. Depending on the availability of volunteers to become COVID Marshalls, to man our Duty Desk & to work in our kitchen we will open next Monday with the aim to increase activity numbers where space permits, offer the chance for a few other activities to start again & to increase services when possible.
Reopening of Long Jetty Over 50’s Club
October 7th: The Club reopened yesterday after a closure of nearly 7 months. How our club operates is limited by the fact that the Committee of Management is committed to making sure that the principles of our COVID Safety Plan, which is based on Social Distancing, Hygiene & Cleaning, Record Keeping & Wellness of all people entering the facility, is practiced at all times while the club is open. Please help to put a smile on our COVID Marshall’s faces while they are doing their best to keep us all safe from this vicious virus that has changed the way that we have to live our lives both now & for an unknown time into our future.
For more detail, the activity program & “Our Information for Members” go to Reopening Talk
Temporary Closure of Long Jetty Over 50s Club
September 2nd: The Committee of Management has released plans for reopening for a trial period 6th-23rd October, 2020. For details go to Reopening Talk as above.
August 25th: The Committee of Management continues to meet regularly to work through the difficult process of planning a successful re-opening of our club on Tuesday, 6th October. So please be patient as we work through this challenge to keep you, the person next to you & our facility COVIDSafe.
August 11th: Long Jetty Over 50s Club is now a registered COVID Safe Business & the Committee of Management is now concentrating on developing a plan that will enable us to implement COVID Safe principles with the resources that we have.
June 15th: The Committee of Management had a General Meeting today. Once again the question of re-opening was discussed. The necessity of social distancing & considering the fact that the majority of our volunteers & members are an “at risk” group, the decision on when to re-open was again deferred until their meeting on 31st August, 2020.
May 20th: The Committee of Management of Long Jetty Over 50s Club for Leisure & Learning Inc will meet on Monday, 31st August, 2020 to discuss re-opening. It will take into consideration Central Coast Council Guidelines & how to safely re-open our club for all our members before a decision is made on a re-opening date.
March 25th: The situation with COVID-19 continues to develop therefore it is extremely unlikely that the Club will reopen on April 20th as planned. It is impossible to predict a reopening date at the moment & the Committee of Management will be guided by advice received from Central Coast Council.
All our activities are therefore suspended & the premises closed to all users.
March 17th: Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and the need to protect our volunteers and members the Committee of Management made the decision to close the club from Wednesday, 18th March. At the moment the plan is to reopen on Monday, 20th April 2020.
