Pegasus Open Day 2021 Cancelled
With so much uncertainty and daily change surrounding COVID-19 restrictions and, in particular, those around big events, we have made the difficult decision to not run our Pegasus Open Day this year. This decision allows us to put more time and effort into other initiatives with more certainty.
We know that this is a very popular event for our supporters and the Canberra community so we deeply apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your understanding.
