I thought I would just drop a note to see how you are coping with the isolation from friends and family.
It’s not easy to be housebound and not have contact with your immediate and extended families, however the Government think we are doing a great job and with a little luck it will all be over soon and we will back to life as we know it.
The State Government look like they are going to provide some grants that would help the club through this time and we may also be able to do something for the staff that we have had to stand down.
When we reopen I will be asking for you to support the club as much as you can so that we may get back to the thriving fun loving place it was before we had to close.
On another note the Annual General Meeting is due soon, this is where the committee report the finances from the previous year and we elect another committee to carry the club forward for another year.
As it is not possible for us to hold a meeting at this time it has been approved by the State Government Agencies that all committees and Boards are able to postpone their annual general meetings until this pandemic is over.
This will mean that the current committee will remain until such time as the club can legally reopen and we will hold an Annual General Meeting 30 days later. As per the constitution the members are to receive 21 days’ notice, and the extra days will give the committee time to reopen the club and prepare for the upcoming meeting.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or anyone on the committee and we will be able to explain.
Have a nice and safe Easter, be kind to each other and I hope to see you all again soon at the club.Colin Johns
