Club Update for all Members 6th December 2021

Membership Renewals 2022:

Next year, our Club is having to face major increases in its running costs. Heating & lighting bills will double, wages & National Insurance costs for staff will rise by close to 10%, and maintaining the Club and fabric of the building continues to be increasingly costly – the recent roof repairs cost £15,000. 

The Committee have not increased membership fees for the last 2 years, but obviously we can’t hold price increases down forever, and have been forced to increase fees for the coming year in order to meet these increased costs.

We can assure you that all of your membership fees and car parking charges are invested back into running of the Club and used for provision and maintenance of the facilities we provide for you.

The Committee has put things in place to make paying the membership fees as convenient as possible, including the facility to pay by direct debit if members wish to spread their payments.

On behalf of the Club and the Committee, I would like to thank you for your support over the last couple of difficult years and sincerely hope that you will continue to support the Club in the forthcoming year.

Kind Regards Jerry Roper (Chairman)
