Message from Cheeseman:

Our planned opening day for the 2020 winter is Saturday 4 July and we are moving forward with pre-season arrangements to be ready to open. Obviously our opening for the season and what the season might look like is very much dictated by Covid-19 Alert Levels and any regulations / requirements that might be put in place before the winter season.

For further information and regular updates please refer to our Covid-19 Page
