Find your words, find your power - online!

Jane Fisher from Newtown Toastmasters

Hi everyone, just letting you know Newtown Toastmasters will be suspending all physical club meetings until further notice, in line with recommended best practices.

We will now run online meetings via Zoom during the same scheduled meeting times. Guests/Visitors are still welcome to take part. To ensure we are able to get you connected to our meeting link, please use the Contact Us form on our website (link below) page to give us a "heads-up" of your plans - including your contact details.

New updates around the club meetings will be posted here and on our club website.

A reminder that basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections, including the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). If you are sick or at risk of infection, please stay home and look after yourself. Apply social distancing and general good hygiene. We will continue to monitor developments and follow Ministry of Health advice. Visit covid19.govt.nz for more developments and updates on the COVID19 situation.

Stay safe everyone and see you at an online meeting!
