Kendall Community Op Shop

President's Report 12/12/ 2019 to 03/12/2020



Well what a year it has been, when COVID arrived and the decision was made to close the shop, not knowing at that stage for how long. When it was time to reopen there were many challenges confronting the Committee to ensure we looked after our Volunteers as most fell into the more vulnerable age group.


A Sub Committee was formed to assist in getting the shop operational in readiness for reopening. There were many issues to contend with to ensure we were going to meet the Government Guidelines. I thank all those involved for their contribution.


Since reopening my personal observation is that most seem to have fitted in to the new way of operation.Sadly, we lost valuable Committee members recently  (Phil Higgins, Sue Parkinson) I personally thank them for their contribution to the Op Shop with their many years of service.


As our Treasurer has stated we have returned to positive treading with the numbers increasing each week.

Have a happy and safe Xmas.

Thank you all

Bill Jones.
