Well the day has dawned when we can finally reopen the club and I’m delighted to say that it will be from 6pm on Friday 21st May 2021. The opening night will be for fully paid up members only.
We think that the COVID rules will still be in place, tables of 6 and table service. Masks will need to be worn when moving around the club and of necessity numbers must be limited. As a reward and thank you for staying with the club through these difficult times vouchers will be issued entitling members to a free drink to welcome you back.
The club has been redecorated inside (the outside will commence in June) with a fresh coat of paint and is looking great. Thanks for this goes to Karen (social secretary) and Trevor Hill (vice Commodore) for all their efforts in organising the teams of volunteers, and also thank you to the volunteers for their hard work.
A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes to keep the club financially solvent and particular thanks go to our treasurer Jane Saxton and our secretary Sandy Peace for all they have done and indeed the work of the committee itself.
So in summary welcome back to your yacht club, even better than before. Put it in your diaries FRIDAY 21st MAY 2021 from 6PM onwards.
Can I please point out that ALL members (including life members) need to complete renewal forms irrespective of whether they have to pay any membership, unless we have these forms your membership will lapse. Our membership secretary Trevor Hill is obliged to keep accurate records to comply with data protection regulations, so your cooperation is appreciated.
