Welcome to Avondale RSA

The Avondale RSA welcomes new members. We are your friendly local RSA club with  great people, atmosphere and great prices.
The Avondale RSA has a proud tradition dating back to 1933.
We welcome all members and their guests and visitors from affiliated clubs. Membership is open to everyone over 18, and we always welcome new members.


Due to recent events in Christchurch, and based on Official advice, we will not be doing our 2019 march and service.

We are encouraging our members and visitors to attend the service at Waikumete Cemetary due to start at 11.00 am.

Our premises will be open from 7.00 am and members and visitors are welcome to enjoy the facilities both before and after the Waikumete service.

Buses  for the Waikumete service will be provided, also for the return. Please advise our Office ASAP if you would like to use the bus service. This is a changing situation and we will let you know of any changes on this site as soon as we can.

For those unable to attend the above service, we will be holding a small

service at the Club, laying of some wreaths, and a recitation of the Ode.

This is expected to happen at 10.30 am.

Members and the public are welcome to our premises on this day.

Fees are as follows;
