Our branch will be undergoing renovations while Defence upgrade works are undertaken at Tindal base. We are committed to maintaining a presence on-base. In the meantime, here's how you can stay in touch with us.
A branch for the future.
We look forward to opening our doors again soon. We are taking this opportunity to give our Tindal branch a refresh to better serve our members.
Our Tindal branch will be open until this Friday 25 March 2022.
We expect to re-open within the next six months and will be in touch when an exact date is known.
We understand these works could cause inconvenience. We thank you for your patience.
