Templeton gives nod to Rolleston RSA

John Rae, President of Templeton RSA.

Templeton RSA members have thrown their weight behind a new association in Rolleston.

Members voted in favour of providing financial support to a new RSA facility in Rolleston, said Templeton president John Rae.

However, the level of financial support was yet to be decided.

“There are no specific plans purely because we now have to complete the feasibility study we were originally commissioned to do. We want to open a new RSA club, that’s the intention,” Mr Rae said.

He said the club would work to ensure the survival of the existing Templeton RSA club.

“We want to make sure the Templeton club doesn’t become lost in the process . . . as most of our members come from the Rolleston and Burnham areas,” Mr Rae said.

He said the RSA was looking at two possible locations for the Rolleston facility but would not confirm the exact sites.
