Cheers to beers, bowls return

CLUBS and pubs are gearing up to open within days as NSW reaches its 70 per cent vaccination rate and stay-at-home restrictions for the fully vaccinated are lifted.

Having been there and done that last year, Canterbury Bankstown’s major clubs are raring to go and ramping up there food and beverage orders in time for Monday’s re-opening.
With full Covid-safe protocols in place, staff and customers need to show proof of double dose vaccination.
A Revesby Workers’ Club spokesperson said: “During the closure our staff online community grew enormously, and this vehicle was pivotal in maintaining contact. The entire community has really bonded and shown real support for each other.
“We know the reopening on October 11 will be laden with challenges as our community navigates through new restrictions and entry requirements. However, the road to return has been laid out and we are keen to follow it.”
Club Picnic Point, however, will not re-open until Wednesday, October 13.
“We are thrilled to welcome back members and the community,” club secretary manager Daniel Robinson said.
“We are constructing a parameter fence to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons, while they enjoy their little local’s many facilities.
“Since the first lockdown in 2020, we take pride in our ability to comply with the 4sqm-rule and we will continue to do so for 2021.
“Staff and directors are very excited to see everyone in the venue again and are especially enthusiastic to see the venue at capacity and our greens being used by bowlers.”
