BLOG ON A SUNDAY

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THERE SUPPORT OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND DEBS FAMILY

I have just sent away 400 pound to the British heart foundation on Debs behalf that was collected at the funeral thank you for your donations , Deb had some heart issues and was nearly on the path to getting things sorted out

The pool league has started and the club will be open every second Thursday , will update details when i get the fixtures , so why not pop in the Europa league games will be on the big screen .

On the club front we still hope to a have a presentation night on the 20th of NOV please pop into the club and add your name if interested .

The locker room is nearly empty in preparation for decorating and the key fob saga is getting closer to having 50 working , if you could try and fit your bags in your new lockers it would be most helpful , we have bags and bowls that look like they have not been used for years .

BLOG ON A FRIDAY

Its with sad news . Deborah who has written this blog for a while passed away yesterday after a battle with COVID.

While not a member of the club she made a massive contribution to the administration side of the club , with letters , notices and filling in grant forms,

Her writing skills were excellent , she would be shaking her head seeing my attempt to do this .

RIP Deb

I will try and continue her blog to try and update members but will be no where near the same standards

BLOG on a FRIDAY ! (late!)

PRESENTATION NIGHT SATURDAY 20th NOVEMBER 7pm until late

There is a sheet on the Notice Board in the Clubhouse for the above so if you are planning on being there can you please put your name down along with numbers in your party. This will help us with catering, Thank you!

The Pool Team starts their season next week, so the bar will be open on Thursday 21st October and there will also be League Games on that night. The Bar will also be open on Sunday as normal.

The Saga of the KeyFobs continues and an Engineer will be back out next week. So if you have a FOB could you pop it in the Club Letter box (with your name) in an envelope before Wednesday afternoon 20th October. Hopefully we can get the issues resolved once and for all! Watch this space!!

We are gradually getting the old locker area empty in order to complete the ongoing refurbishment.

Happy Weekend & Stay safe πŸ™
