Subject: RE: How many folk clubs have reopened? /covid recovery
Here in the Land of Oz, we in Greater Sydney are almost out of lockdown with 70% of eligible people double vaccinated - in the words of the Venues Manager of my local council - Monday 11th, the day we start coming out of our shells is (quote) now euphemistically being called "Freedom Day" (ps. under 16s have not been eligible until recently)

Hirers were contacted about coming back under covid plans & Govt regulations that include double vaccinations & NO SINGING INDOORS.

So maybe when we get to 80% double vacc rate singing might be back, anyway the world is supposed to be fully open by 1st Dec when non-vacc will be allowed out. Not that some of them will need permission to wander about beforehand ...

Hall has been booked for next year & some of the acts to be programmed will be 3rd-time lucky as they had been originally booked for 2020 & lost out again this year when we went into lockdown in June.
