Wings over Illawarra

POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

NEW DATE IN NOVEMBER

In the interests of Public Health and the directive of the Federal Government Wings Over Illawarra 2020 is being postponed. In an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19 the Federal Government has made the decision to ban non-essential gatherings of more then 500 people. At this stage we have no idea on how long this ban will be in effect, and considering the risk to public health, along with the potential of travel bans being introduced, we feel it is in the best interests of the public and the future of the event to postpone until later in the year.

We would like to emphasize that we are postponing the event and not cancelling it.

 

For more information and to confirm you will be attending please contact Michael Benton 0411019112 or Phil Boye 0429-671649″.
