Because of Covid restrictions the proposed Video via Zoom presentation at the Progress Hall on Friday, 2nd July, 2021 has been cancelled.
The reason is that the Zoom presenter is under lock down in Sydney. We will be advised when a new date is announced.

An AED has been purchased with joint donations from Currarong Community Association and Currarong Arts and Crafts Society.
The device is to be installed outside Zac’s shop and is for public use 24/7. The area is monitored by CTV cameras which should stop vandalism. The installation will occur during July 2021.
The AED can be used following a suspected heart attack and while waiting for Ambulance assistance.
Although AEDs are at the Fire Station, Currarong Bowling Club and the Currarong Caravan Park, these are not always readily available.
We are very pleased and thankful to the Veolia Mulwaree Trust for granting our Community Association $1000 for the Upgrade of female toilets project.
We are looking at having a book stall outside the hall on some of the days over Easter. Many people have excess books that others might appreciate so instead of throwing those out you can leave them (preferably in a box or bag) under the car port at the back of the hall. Or if this is a problem give us a call on 0412 353 605 and we’ll come and collect them.
It’s extremely disappointing that our Art Show banners at the start of Forest Road and the beginning of Currarong Road were vandalised. Firstly spray painted and after we cleaned them up and put them back up, they were ripped apart with a knife. It’s hard to imagine why someone would do this but we urge all members and friends to come along and support the Art Show. We are doing this for the community and for the many artists who have been doing it tough over the last 12 months.
On 8 October 2020 it was announced that funding of $3.6 million has been secured in partnership with the State and Federal Governments as part of the Covid-19 stimulus Road Safety Program to fast-track the upgrade of the worse sections of the Currarong Road. Shoalhaven City Council will also provide $1.0 million towards this and will manage the project.
Planned work involves a widened centre line, shoulder widening and profile line marking along a 4.2 km stretch of the road starting near the Lighthouse Road turn-off.
A very big thank you to the NSW Government and our local MP Shelley Hancock for further funding to complete the installation of a new PA & Audio Visual system for the Currarong Progress hall.
We are all aware that we are facing a very challenging time with the worldwide spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus. Whilst Currarong may have some advantages of being a small community we don’t believe anywhere is safe from this virus which can have a devastating effect, causing illness and unfortunately for some it is fatal.
