FAR events in March
With Auckland in Level 3 and the rest of New Zealand in Level 2, FAR is carefully considering how to proceed with any events in the coming weeks. At this stage all North Island events have either been postponed (pending further lockdown decisions) or moved on-line. South Island events will go ahead, but we ask that anyone who has travelled to Auckland in recent days, or who feels unwell, does not attend.
Please feel free to call FAR if you have any further questions. Keep scanning and keep well!

FAR activities under newly announced COVID-19 levels
All FAR events planned between today and Friday 14 August will be held via video-link rather than face to face. If you were registered to attend an event this week, you will be contacted with details of how to login to the meeting via video.
All decisions around meetings planned for coming weeks will be made once further information around the Covid situation becomes available. This includes Arable Ys, Wednesday 19 August, which may be shifted to a video format. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
