Great news! Open for business Take 2!

Merimbula RSL Club will reopen at 10am tomorrow (Friday July 17).

We have the majority of coronavirus test results back from staff and they have all been negative. While we wait for the results for the remaining staff there might be a few menu changes in the short-term but apart from that it will be back to business as usual, 7 days a week from 10am to 10pm.

It goes without saying that we will be operating under NSW Health COVID-19 guidelines which include extra measures that we have been following since we first re-opened in June.

Thanks again to all your messages of support this week. We are blessed to live in such an amazing community
