Dear Members,

Due to the recent and rapid development of COVID-19, we find ourselves in challenging and trying circumstances at the present time.

Your health and well-being are our primary concern at this point in time. Please take care.

The Federation shall keep all members updated with any changes as they come to hand.

Should any member have any queries at all about the above statement, please feel free to contact the Federation Secretary, either by email at or by telephone on 02 4965 8719 (please leave a message if the telephone is not answered when you call).
