The Upper Lansdowne Players were to perform their 2020 plays in August this year but it is with sadness that they have made the decision to postpone their 2020 play season.
They feel it prudent to wait until the risks associated with the COVID-19 virus has passed.
The Players had two fantastic short plays lined up and are looking forward to casting, rehearsing and performing them when this uncertainty time passes.
Lansdowne students home-schooled
Most of the Lansdowne Public School students are now experiencing home schooling.

Business as usual at post office and shop
The Lansdowne post office and shop will be remaining open as usual. They are an essential service. They have groceries, fresh milk and the bread is delivered daily. Not sure about toilet paper.
Easter fundraiser cancelled
The planned Easter fund raiser for the Lansdowne Fire Brigade has been cancelled. It is hoped that another fund raiser for the brigade can be held later in the year.
