150th Jubilee Celebrations - Postponed

The 150th Jubilee celebrations, planned for 20 - 22nd March 2020, have been postponed due to the developing situation with COVID-19.

We now hope to hold the Jubilee within 2020, the 150th year, however we are unable to set an actual date due to the evolving nature of this virus. With hundreds of people registered to attend the celebrations from all over New Zealand and internationally we feel this is a necessary precaution.
The organising committee's decision to postpone was unanimous. The committee has been working towards this event for the past two years and while it is disappointing it is the right decision for our community. We felt postponing the event was necessary to protect our community and to play our part in the national response to minimise the effect of this virus. At the rate this situation is escalating the committee felt we needed to make this decision now rather than wait for further directives from the Government.
By making the announcement now we hope this gives people time to change their travel arrangements. We are a strong, caring community and I am sure everyone will support the committee with this difficult decision.

Details about the postponement will be sent to those who have registered with regards to futures dates and refunds.
