Dear Members and Friends,

Here is the latest news from the Club


Our scheduled entertainment event for this Saturday 24 July featuring John McCabe has unfortunately had to be postponed.


Friday Night Draws

This Friday night sees our First Draw at $1000.00 with the

Second Draw now standing at $700.00.

Noble 600

The Restaurant opened on 25 June 2021.

After careful deliberation the Committee reviewed the Menu Offering and Price Points to our Members and the General Public. A decision was reached to allow Members a more affordable option when dining in the Restaurant and therefore we are pleased to advise that our price points have been adjusted.

Members will also receive a further 10% discount on the current prices points on food and beverage purchases when producing your Membership Card at the time of payment.

Noble 600 will continue to participate in the Clubs Points Programme with Members receiving their 2% in Membership Points when purchases are made through the Restaurant.

Noble 600 will provide preferential price points to Sections of the Club when booking Events. These will be negotiated at the time of the booking.

Noble 600 has joined Ruralco and has recognised the Seniors Gold Card Program to provide even more benefits to the wider Community.

Noble 600 has recognised the relationship with our Direct Trades which we deal with and will offer them with a 10% discount on their food and beverage purchases. This offer is only made to Direct Trades who the Club deals with.

Specials will be on offer and will be advertised on our Specials Board which arrived this week. This will include a Pensioners Special on Wednesdays.

On Fridays we will offer an exclusive opportunity to enjoy our Noble 600 Happy hour commencing from 5pm. This will be in the Noble 600 Bar. This offer is open to Members and the General Public.

Remember we are the only locally owned bottlestore north of the river and have the best stocked bottlestore in town for all your supplies.  

We have bottlestore vouchers for sale which can be used at any Super Liquor Centre outlet in New Zealand and make great gifts.      

The members loyalty system operates in the bar and cafe as well as the bottlestore which means that every time you make a purchase in those areas you have 2% of the cost credited to your loyalty account  but you must produce your membership card in order to qualify so we urge everyone to carry their card whenever on the Club premises.    

The bottlestore  accepts Ruralco and Farmlands members credit cards and all customers are welcome to use these if applicable. It is not necessary to be a member of the Club in order to use the bottlestore.  Remember to click on the Liquor Centre icon on this site for specials which may not be advertised elsewhere.      

We have free pool games every Sunday all day in our bar with all members and their guests welcome.     

Club members qualify for a 15% discount when obtaining a warrant of fitness for your car from VTNZ. Show your membership card  and you will get the discount and this club will receive 2.5%. West side Hire offers club members a 10% discount on their services and there are discounts available at Assure motels.    

 Where partners qualify for a joint subscription we can combine your loyalty points onto one card for convenience. Please contact the office if you would like this to be actioned. 

The current Club Executive is:


Gary Fransen                            President   

Neil Stuthridge                         Vice President
