Just when our community was starting to reap the rewards of regional holidaymakers, we’re hit with a second round of COVID restrictions. But we know that community safety is paramount and we support the measures taken by the SA Health and the State Government. As a community we need to band together, be calm and respectful and do our bit to ensure the longer term safety of all, especially the most vulnerable within our community.”
