An Auckland veterans club is having to close after selling their property and leasing it back for a “very, very high” rent, Stuff reports. While it’s only down the road from the Papakura Military Camp​, the Papakura Returned and Services’ Association (RSA) has been unable to stay afloat. Membership had been flagging and when Covid-19 forced the club to shut down for extended periods, it accelerated the inevitable decline. Meanwhile, Royal New Zealand RSA chief executive Martin O’Donoghue​ is campaigning to sign up younger veterans country-wide, with a more community based approach.
