Roadworks on Armadale Road
We have been advised by a contractor of the Auckland Council that roadworks will take place, beginning approximately 10 October.This will have an impact on parking within the club and the parking in the surrounding streets.
We have a few options
Access from the Remuera Road gate. There is a road safety when cars leave during peak traffic. Cars will not be able to park in the drive or on the yellow dotted lines so fewer car parks available.
The contractor may block one or both entrance an exit on Armadale road and we have asked them to consider working on one access at a time, therefore one access will be available as an in/out for parking.
We will update the website anytime we have new information. Your patience and co-operation during this disruptive time is
Notice is given that our Annual General Meeting will be on Sunday 4 November.
