The RPP Board of Management convened a special ‘phone hook-up’ and decided that, as of 9am Monday March 16th, all volunteer presentation shifts will cease for the time being.

Concerned about the most recent CoronaVirus developments, the Board were unanimous in their decision.

With the escalating COVID-19 threat, and its likely arrival on the Mornington Peninsula, the leadership group had no option but to exercise its right to guarantee the health and safety of its members.

Breakfast shifts, Monday through to Saturday, will continue for the time being.
