From 17 December 2021, or when 80% of Queenslanders aged 16 and over are fully vaccinated (whichever comes first), restrictions on businesses will be further eased, with many businesses and venues able to return to operating at full capacity.

  • There will be no capacity restrictions on businesses where only fully vaccinated people can attend.
  • There will however be restrictions on unvaccinated people. These restrictions target non-essential leisure activities which are not essential for people to meet their basic needs, but present a considerable risk to contributing to an outbreak in our community when our borders re-open.
  • Both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people will still be able to access essential services and activities. This means unvaccinated people will still be able to go to grocery stores, pharmacies and participate in activities like going to the gym for exercise. Capacity restrictions may still be in place at these types of businesses, which will limit the number of people in attendance.

For example, if a Club has both sporting facilities and restaurant/bar facilities, unvaccinated people can only access the sporting or exercise facilities. This would mean if an unvaccinated person attends a golf club, they can play a round of golf but would not be permitted to enter the clubhouse for a meal.

People will still need to check in using the Check In Qld app, however from 19 November 2021, vaccination certificates can be linked into the app, making it simple and easy to prove vaccination status

Dear club members, 

Southern Downs Regional Council was allocated funding from the Australian Government through the Drought Communities Programme - Refurbishment Grant to deliver economic stimulus and other benefits to drought-affected regions of Australia. The program is to support local community infrastructure and other drought relief projects for communities who have been impacted by drought. 

 

Warwick Gliding Club was successful in its grant application with almost $24,000 allocated for an infrastructure upgrade at our clubhouse. We are installing upgrades to our clubhouse in the form of new windows, airconditioning and a new solar system to add to our existing one. Work is proceeding already. 

 

This is the biggest upgrade to our clubhouse in more than 20 years and means we will have a comfortable clubhouse for our members and visitors to use.  

 

We are using all local contractors from Allora and Warwick which is adding a much needed boost to the local economy. With these much needed upgrades to our facilities it makes our club attractive to new members and those wanting to stay in our facilities. We can report our membership has been increasing in recent months even despite first the impact of the drought in 2019 and then the COVID pandemic in early 2020. 

 

We have been supported by Southern Downs Regional Council over many years in the form of grants for water tanks which has helped us get through the drought. We are grateful for this latest grant and the ongoing support that Council has shown for gliding activities at the airfield.

Dear club members,
We were successful with the QLD government Active Restart Infrastructure Recovery Funding grant application and received a grant of $6700 even though the application was oversubscribed.
The grant was for a new solar system to be installed on the clubhouse.
A new solar system should mean we can meet all our electricity needs.
