We previously advised that our office would be closed over the Christmas period, from Friday Dec 11th.
However the office will now be open on Monday Dec 14th as volunteers will be getting the new Trailwalker ready for distribution.
Therefore the new office closure date will be Tuesday Dec 15th. It will reopen on Tuesday 19th January 2016.
Last Chance – Heysen Trail 2016 Calendar
As a result, Monday Dec 14th will be your last chance to call into the office to purchase a copy of our new calendar. We will be open that day during our normal business hours of 10.30 am -2.30 pm.
Our new address is Suite 212, 2nd Floor Epworth Building, 33 Pirie Street, Adelaide.
After that you will still be able to order the calendar though our online shop: The sale price will remain at $15.00 per copy (plus postage & handling from $2.85).
Online Shop Sales over Christmas
While the office is closed, our online shop will remain open for business.
However, as many of our volunteers will be on holidays, it may take longer than normal to service orders. We will endeavour to despatch shop orders within 5 business days.
If you want to shop for last minute Christmas purchases we will process and despatch any orders received by midday Friday December 18th, on that day.
We’re moving to:
Suite 212, 2nd Floor, Epworth Building
33 Pirie Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Our office will be closed this Friday 20th November. We will re-open for some business at our new premises on Monday 23rd November, and will be fully open on Tuesday 24th November (this is when our phone service will resume at the new premises). During this moving time the best way to contact us will be via email.
Apart from our address, all our other contact details remain the same.
Our new central location is in Pirie Street, adjacent to the Adelaide City Council offices.
Christmas Closure Dates
Our shop and office will also be closed over Christmas, from Friday 11th December. We will reopen on Tuesday 19th January 2016.
The End-to-End 5 group caught up with the Friends’ 1,000th member, Rachel Faulkner, in Port Augusta earlier this month. Rachel lives in Whyalla and is a Trail Runner with her partner. Rachel explained that they joined the Friends as they enjoyed running the Heysen Trail. As the 1,000th member Rachel was presented Life Membership and a embroidered fleecy top by Julian Monfries, Secretary (and past President) of the Friends, representing the President.
