Harbord Diggers can confirm that the delivery of the new hospitality venue will occur in 2018, however this will mean that the club will temporarily cease trading for a period prior to launch.
Unfortunately the Harbord Diggers building team lost 60 construction days as a result of inclement weather between January and May this year, which set back the project timeline for Stage 1 work considerably.
As a result, the Mounties Group Board has decided to temporarily cease trading of the current Harbord Diggers club from 1 November 2017 until the new club launch in April/May 2018.
Closure from November this year will allow us to mitigate construction impact such as noise, dust and vibration expected from the stage 2 demolition and excavation work that was originally planned to occur after stage 1 works were complete.
It also allows for an approximate eight month reduction on the overall construction timeline.
As valued members of Mounties Group we are implementing a plan to compensate members. Members who have Harbord Diggers or Manly Bowling Club as their club of origin, will be contacted shortly regarding how Mounties Group will be addressing the impact of the club’s temporary closure.
Harbord Diggers will remain open as usual until close of business on Tuesday, 31 October 2017 with the club planning a schedule of free community events over the next four months.
The Diggers temporary fitness venue, Gfitness Freshwater will trade as usual and Harbord Diggers sister venue Manly Bowling Club will remain open to members and guests.
