The Prime Minister has today ( Monday 23 March ) announced that New Zealand's Covid-19 alert level has risen to three and the country will go to level 4 - full lockdown in 48 hours.

Essential services will continue but schools and non-essential businesses will be closed from tomorrow. For MFNZ members, this means no events or club gatherings. People can still go outside for recreation but must follow social distancing advice (and common sense) to limit the spread of the virus  – keep at least two metres apart, cover coughs or sneezes, and wash your hands frequently.

Please keep up to date, the best and most up to date source of advice is the NZ Government Covid-19 website https://covid19.govt.nz/latest-updates./

Stay well!

Flying Field near Pahiatua
Lew Woods has kindly offered Club members the use of his flying field.   

To find the field from PN, drive over the Pahiatua Track and as you descend the hill into Pahiatua turn right before you cross the railway line, proceed for approx. 1km, the road turns sharp, at this point turn right (if you are on gravel you have gone too far) find the drive with letter box 86, proceed up drive.  Click here for Goggle Map
