Keeping it sustainable, fresh - and gluten free!

The Club continues to put sustainability and health first and foremost.

For some time, the Club has been using only Sustainable Seafood – now we’ve added Marine Stewardship Council certified sustainable.

Tempura battered Hake is our choice for fish and chips and we’re now serving salad with the dish, keeping it fresh. Of course, there’s also our fabulous garlic aioli!

Gluten Free Bread

We’ve sourced a fantastic new Gluten Free Bread from our friends at the Essential Grain organic bakery. Essential grain also supply us with our Panini and the awesome Wholegrain Sourdough.

Gluten Free Soy Milk

Made with organic Australian soybeans, is now also available – just ask.

See you at the Club!

UpFront Club wins funding for solar panels

Against some stiff competition, the Club has been successful in gaining a $34,621 grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund to install solar panels.

The benefits will be greatly appreciated by our members and community with the potential to reduce our greenhouse emissions by nearly 90 Tonnes per annum.

In addition, the solar panels will enable us to partner with the solar equipment supplier to offer regular education forums delivering education to the greater community about renewable energies.

Our thanks to Andrew Powell, Jenny McKay and Nathan Arrowsmith for being referees for our application.
