Thank you all for renewing your memberships. I am pleased to report that we already have over
800 members which is a very good start to the year. Please endeavour to pick up your membership
card together with the car park sticker if you have not already done so. As usual we are amassing a large collection
With regard to the car park sticker please ensure
that you display it your car. Members
and their guests are always welcome to use the car park at any time and the
intention of the parking control is to stop use of the car park by others who
are not using the Club facilities.
I am pleased to report that our annual accounts have
now been prepared and are being finalised.
Unfortunately the outcome this year is disappointing and down on
the previous year. Although we do have a
surplus of £1,036 this was only achieved because the balance of our insurance
claim was received during the year. Copies will be made available later in the month
We are having to increase most of our bar prices this
month because of increases from our suppliers and I should also advise you that
we will also need to do so on our food in the next few weeks. These will be modest increases and as always
our aim is to provide good value to members.
This year our Annual General Meeting will be on Friday
22 March and the usual notices will be displayed towards the end of this month. The meeting agenda together with the report
and accounts will be emailed out to members a couple of weeks before the meeting
date and copies will also be available in the Club. For those of you with a desire to become more
involved in the running of the Club the deadline date for Committee nominations
will be Thursday 7 March.
