Dear Members,

As you will be aware, the Club will be welcoming a new catering franchisee in January.

Our existing provider has indicated that he will not now be working the full notice period until early in the New Year and has left the Club with immediate effect.

With apologies for the inconvenience, contingency arrangements are being put in place to cover the intervening period until our new caterer joins us.

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 cater the Christmas shotgun meal also on that day.

We have made a number of approaches to other providers to seek to fulfil bookings in the coming days and weeks. An update will be provided to those organisers of scheduled lunches for groups such as ‘The T&Ts’ and ‘The Owls’ as soon as possible.

Please note that regardless of catering arrangement outcome the entertainment booked for Jazz Sunday, Kids Party & New Years Eve will go ahead as planned.

Thank you for your understanding and patience in the circumstances.

We will keep you posted.

Michael McAvoy
Honorary Secretary
