Christmas Functions & Catering Update

Dear Members

Further to my note earlier in the week, the following provides an update on the contingency arrangements we have put in place following the loss of our catering franchisee.

Starting today, the Club will be supplied with freshly made scones [, the ones members are used to,] daily.

On Saturday and Sunday, the bar will have a selection of sandwiches available for purchase. These are being supplied by local company ‘Sunflower’.

On Sunday 15th December the Jazz Brunch is going ahead. A 3-course meal for £18.50 (choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts) is available. Please do book in advance through the office or the bar before Sunday to allow the chef providing this service to plan ahead. Last orders will be 3.30/4pm which is slightly earlier than normal. The band will be playing from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and the Lady Captain will be doing her Charity Draw at 5pm.

As mentioned previously the ‘Early Birds’ have moved their Christmas lunch to Tuesday 17th December when we have arranged for an outside caterer to fulfil their booking, and also cater the Christmas shotgun meal on that day.

The Christmas Draw will take place on Saturday 21st December at 5pm, the prize will be half the pot at that time and there will also be additional spot prize draws for those present on the day.

The Christmas Children’s party will go ahead on Sunday 22nd December, catering cover has been arranged for the children. Again, please let the office know if you are planning to attend.

New Year’s Eve – event is still going ahead as the band was already in place. As it stands, we are still trying to secure Catering for this event however we will go ahead on an entertainment only basis regardless. We will update you all as soon as we can.

We look forward to welcoming our new catering franchisee ‘R S Young Catering’ to the Club commencing 25th January.

Thank you for your understanding and patience in the circumstances. Your continued custom and support for forthcoming events is much appreciated.
