MARCH 31st 2020 FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear members,

 We are now all coping with the restrictions imposed by the Corona Virus, not only on a personal level but businesses and clubs alike.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated and hardworking committee who are doing their utmost to maintain our club during its closure with an aim to having it ready for use when the time arises.


I am sure you are aware that materials for green maintenance, insurances, utilities etc. must be paid for whether the premises are used or not and unfortunately  these expenses swallow the subscription fees.

We are at present unable to raise any further revenue from new members, raffles, bar, green fees and visiting clubs so I am asking you to consider allowing the club to retain this years subscription until further decisions can be made. 

As basic running costs are well in excess of subscription  income to date, we shall inevitably have to use our reserves to cover the shortfall so your help and  understanding at this time will make such a difference.

Any outstanding subscriptions are of course still due for renewal and will obviously help our situation.


 My thanks to Chris, Gwilym, Lindsay, Ken, John and Carole who have spent so much time in dealing with numerous problems on your behalf.

 Keep safe and well.

 My best wishes

Fred Knotts

(President)
