CLUB NEWS - November 2021

 

Lots happening at the club between now and Xmas,

Firstly, we have great news for our Rugby fans, we have purchased the right to show all of the upcoming Autumn Internationals which are being screened on Amazon Prime.

On the entertainment front It all starts this Friday with our Annual Race night, the evening starts at 7.30 with the first race at 8.00pm

We will be operating Table service on Friday as a trial for busy events, the aim being to avoid over-crowding at the bar.

Then at the end of the month on the 27th we have the return of the fabulous UKEHOLICS, for another great night of their unique music and humour 

Moving into December, the Thrift club will be starting again on December 3rd  Liz will be on hand from 7.00pm to take your subscriptions ready for Xmas 2022!!!!

NEWS UPDATE - A.G.M. Memberships 2021 and re=opening update

 POSTPONEMENT of AGM.

As you all be aware normally, we would have held our AGM for the year 2020 at the end of February, whilst we did consider attempting to convene the meeting via “Zoom”, the officers decided that it was likely we would still not achieve enough attendees to qualify as a valid AGM.

Therefore, the AGM for 2020 will be held later this year once we have re-opened.

I am pleased however to be able to inform you that through careful management and maximising the Government funding that has been available, at the end of 2020 the club had retained its healthy financial position. 

CLUB MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS FOR THE YEAR 2021 to 2022 

Under normal circumstances the renewal date for club memberships would be the1st of March 2021.Members have had reduced access to the club facilities during 2020, and the club has not suffered during the year financially so I am pleased to advise you that the Officers and committee have all agreed that members with a valid membership to 28/2/2021 will have their membership extended to 28/2/2022 at NO CHARGE.

There will be donation envelopes available for anyone who still wishes to contribute to the club in lieu of a membership fee.

As you may be aware the club closed to new memberships during 2020 as we wanted to ensure there was always room at the club for our loyal members, this remains the case and no new memberships will be accepted when we re-open.

However, if you were a member during 2019/20 and did not for whatever reason renew your membership during 2020 we will accept on payment of the normal fees a late renewal.

 

CLUB RE-OPENING

We expect to be able to reopen on May 17th subject to any late changes by our Government, as far as we are aware table service and other restrictions will be in place exactly as we operated during October and November of 2020.

We look forward to welcoming all members back to the club then.

 

 

 

 

 


 

The Club is always pleased to welcome new members, particularly those from the local community. Current membership consists of people from all ages and all walks of life and occupations.
