Eighteen months after the closure of the Howick RSA clubrooms in Wellington Street, newly co-opted executive member Margaret Hawkeswood is pleased members are able to use the old RSA for some activities while awaiting the building’s redevelopment.
The clubrooms will be open to members and friends on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 2pm.
“The executive committee wants to reconnect with members and do better in communicating the future redevelopment and future options,” Margaret said.
“I have self-appointed myself the RSA Social Co-ordinator.
“There are some RSA groups e.g. snooker, indoor bowls, Women’s Section, which are in recess waiting for the rebuild.”
Margaret can be contacted at 027 7238473.
“Or come along on Tuesdays or Thursdays to the Wellington Street clubrooms for a chat and free tea or coffee.”
Meanwhile, Margaret said the ukulele and majong groups are very happy with their home base at Bosun’s Bar at The Good Home in Howick – the RSA’s temporary base while rebuilding is going on at the RSA.
