HELP US SAVE our Hardys Bay Community Club


Please Help!

Hardys Bay Club is no longer affiliated with the RSL and is now operating as Hardys Bay Community Club with no poker machines. It is a public company limited by guarantee and the Club is owned by the members. 

The recent COVID-19 situation has had a devastating impact on the club, so it is now up to the community to come to the rescue.

Money raised will be going towards restocking of the bar, working capital to pay creditors and urgent repairs and maintenance to present a refreshed club for the community.

The restaurant will be under new management with a revamped pub style menu.

Due to forced closure of the club for over 3 months, the following issues need attention:

* Remediation of the bar equipment.

* The Hardys Bay cockatoos are alive and well but unfortunately have feasted on much of the deck furniture which now needs to be replaced.

* The air conditioning is in dire need of resuscitation.


We indicated in our last update to Members that the Club was looking at raising up to $100,000 to enable it to have a chance of long-term survival.  We have been fortunate that the Club has been pledged loans of $35,000 from certain Members on very friendly terms.  In addition, we have applied for Government assistance available to small businesses affected by Covid-19 of a further $32,000. 

We also have plans for an exclusive Club Benefit Concert(s) which we know will be well supported but we need to wait until further lifting of the Covid-19 social distancing restrictions.  Watch-out for further details soon. 

This funding is a great start, but we need to raise more to cover the Club’s start-up costs and the unexpected repairs to equipment following closure.

There is a lot to do, but with your help, we can get there!

We acknowledge the assistance of the landlord in agreeing to a rent reduction.

Please help keep this venue alive for the locals and the Central Coast music community.
