Web & Email Address Changes
The Club has simplified it's web and email addresses by dropping the '.org' from each.
The new web address is www.kairangibridge.nz which will now automatically appears in your browser's address bar when you enter the previous address.
Whilst the kairangibridge.org.nz address will work in the interim, you should immediately update any bookmarks (or favourites), to show the new address.
The December Newsletter provided an update on the Toitu Poneke Project and mentioned that our Club has 'stepped back' from this and is looking at options to rebuild or strengthen our existing premises.
The Toitu Poneke 'Review of Development Concept' report is no longer embargoed so is now available to Members who are interested.
A Media release by the Poneke Rugby Club, regarding the 'hub' approach, appeared in the DomPost on 18 December (page 10).
