Obviously, we have been putting our monthly markets on hold currently until lockdown ends but we are unsure when that will be. Vaccination will be the key. To encourage vaccination, governing bodies might require the public to be vaccinated before they return to their favorite event, for example the races, punters, staff, and volunteers, including all Rotarians might all need to be vaccinated before being granted entry.

What a great Zoom meeting on the 9th of Sept 2021 John Hasslam talked and talked and talked, so much I had to mute him. But not one person interrupted because we were all so interested in his stories of parliament. John spoke with personal knowledge and experience of his time in parliament from 1975- 1980 and how things were done. It really was a privilege to hear how respectful John spoke of our politicians, and parliament, no matter what party they were associated with. He can name drop till the cows come home, he was involved in some big decision making on how things are currently done now and campaigned heavily to get the new parliament house. When he was in parliament, he truly was dedicated to his people that he represented.
