It is evident from news reports and general information that the COVID situation is not improving with time.  While the Club will always follow health regulations that are in force, it is evident that the virus is still very much a threat.  We would like you to consider wearing a mask at the Club. This is STRONGLY recommended and is considered to be to the benefit of all Members.

We would like you to stay away from the Club if you have any symptoms that are either      flu-like or any other ill effects.  If you are a close contact we would also like you to stay away from the Club for at least 7 days.

Thank you for the cooperation we have had so far from all of you. We appreciate your ongoing compliance.

                                                             SELF-HELP CARVING GROUP

After a long period of time on the shelf, the Self-Help Carving Group is now meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  Classes begin at 6.30.pm. The intake is limited to 6 persons. Check the notice at the Clubhouse and see if there is a vacancy for you, and if there is, put your name down.  

General workshop fees apply.  For further information and enquiries, please contact Jackie Coste or enquire at the Club.  

                                    Until further notice: 

Workshop opening hours for the Mordialloc Lapidary Club are as follows:  

            Tuesday 7.00pm – 10pm 

            Thursday 11am – 3pm   &  7.00pm – 10pm

            Saturday 1pm – 5pm.

As a result of Members requesting an earlier start for evening workshops during the Winter months, the Committee has agreed that the Club can open at 7.00pm instead of the official opening time of 7.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  This arrangement will continue until further notice.

Please note:  If the rostered Duty Officer cannot be there by 7.00pm, then the first non-scheduled Duty Officer to arrive will need to open up and take on the Duty Officer role until the rostered Duty Officer arrives.
