Massey Park members join the frontline
By David Tease, Golf NSW
Meet Massey Park Golf Club's Dynamic Duo. Rosie Ch'ng and Menna Davies, both registered nurses who worked together more than 40 years ago at Westmead hospital, have come out of retirement and are working on the frontline a couple of days a week administering vaccinations at the Sydney Olympic Park Mass Vaccination Hub. With COVID cases still rising across New South Wales and demand for vaccinations reaching record numbers, it's reassuring to see folk like Rosie and Menna rolling up their sleeves doing their bit to help the state recover from lockdown and get the sport back on course. With their beloved club still in lockdown, Rosie and Menna are determined to ensure the closure is as short as possible. "It's our way out of lockdown and getting our club back up and running to full capacity. "It's been great to see so many people coming in to get their jabs and we encourage all members who are still requiring or considering vaccinations to book in," the pair said. Massey Park manager Tony Rosillo said the pair's efforts were an inspiration to the Club's members. "Rosie and Menna are a popular pair of members. When most of us are struggling to deal with the impact of this pandemic, this is a great story made that little more special knowing that these ladies are members of our Club," Mr Rosillo said. "It has been a difficult time, and we all have to work together to get over this hurdle. If these troopers can roll up their sleeves to help the community, perhaps we should roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated."
