Volgren Dandenong - Friday 25 January 2019
We are off to Volgren Dandenong on Friday 25 January for a free members-only tour.

Bookings opened at 12pm on Sunday 6 January and the 40 spaces filled up in 3 hours, especially after we announced a bonus visit to the nearby depot of Kingstons (refer to details on the BCSV website). There is now a "wait list" on the BCSV website which members' can add their name to if they missed out.

Some significant late changes have been made to the upcoming BCSV Members' Tour: Kingstons / Volgren Dandenong

In some good news, we have been able to secure an additional 10 spaces for the visit to Volgren. All members on the wait list will now be able to attend.

Thanks to those on the wait list for their patience. Contact will be made directly with those on the wait list to confirm their spot.

Due to overwhelming demand, Volgren has requested we stagger the arrival of the groups of attendees to best manage the day. Numbers are almost twice their initial expectations.

Unfortunately, Kingstons Tours have cancelled the planned tour bonus. Management has advised us that, due to work requirements and availability of staff, they will not be able to host us at this time. We apologise for this but the decision was beyond our control.

Further details about the updated itinerary and booking procedures for the staggered groups were progressively emailed to each tour attendee over the weekend.

It is also important to note the Code of Conduct to enter Volgren, including the compulsory wearing of pants. Refer to your email.
