Saturday 11th., December, WAG Christmas Get Together

November 24, 2021
Hi WAG Financial Members and Friends,

It’s been long months of lockdown for all. I would hope it has given everyone time to recharge and gather your thoughts toward your and WAGs future creative activities.

Constant disruption caused by the pandemic has socially limited most of us who respect the rules, the amazing progress in which the vaccination program has evolved and is producing bright light at the end of a very long dark tunnel.

As at 27th. November, across NSW, 94.5 percent of people aged 16 and over have received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 92.3 percent are fully vaccinated. So lets start getting social again.

WAG will commence with our WAG CHRISTMAS Get Together
on Saturday December 11th from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm
at the Buxton School of Arts Community Hall.
Please RSVP me by email 
On or before Monday 6th December in order to satisfy
COVIDSafe regulations on numbers.  Please bring a plate to share 
and a friend/partner if you wish - No Entry Fee, 
Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be supplied. 
BYO alcohol, please if you drink – don’t drive!  
Double Vaccination is essential to entry.

NSW is expected to hit 95% double VAX on or before December 15th.,
if NSW reach 95% before the 15th., most of the restrictions listed below may be relaxed.


The latest COVID Restrictions from NSW Health:
COVID-Safe check-ins and proof of vaccination required for all attending.
Density limits of 1 person per 2sqm indoor and outdoor areas apply to all activities listed below.
COVID-19 Safety Plans apply. 
If you are fully vaccinated you can visit these facilities. You must:
Hope to see you there.

The COVID-19 crisis has worsened and as Wollondilly is classified as part of Greater Sydney, Wollondilly Shire is unfortunately included in the extensive restrictions across the Sydney region.

 Wollondilly Shire Council have made the decision to re-schedule the Illuminate Festival to May 2022 to ensure we deliver a COVID safe Event for all. The Art Exhibition will be prepared on the Thursday TBA at 10:00am, in the newly refurbished Shire Hall Art Spaces, the Artisan Market will open in the main hall Saturday TBA at 10:00am closing 9:00pm Saturday evening.

Waste to Art Competition and Exhibition was to be held in the old SES building on the corner of Colden Street and Menangle Street. Due to hold ups in construction the exhibition will now be moved to the Picton library in Menangle street on November 11th. See Council website for details:
