I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas.
Thank you for your support during the festive period at the Club - all events were well supported, especially Christmas Day where we had a record turnout.
The Annual Staff Party will be held on Monday 10th February, the Club will be closed from 5.30pm onward with only the Gunners Bar and sporting facilities remaining open. Many thanks to all who have contributed generously to the cumshaw fund to the benefit of our loyal, hard-working staff.
We have started the detailed renovation planning of the Main Clubhouse roof. The roof is in poor condition, I’m sure you will have noticed the water damaged walls and observed the odd bucket collecting runoff water. This should take three months to complete with minimum disruption envisaged to Members, once finished we plan to start work on ‘phase two’ pathways resurfacing work.
I’m delighted to report we significantly upgraded our internet capabilities (8mb to 120mb). This has been a long, arduous assignment as it required our service provider to build a fiber optic trench from Cox’s Road along Gascoigne Road and into the Club. Now complete, this will enhance our ability to attract business-style events as previously this was always a stumbling point.
As we head towards Chinese New Year we have a range of Food & Beverage promotions. These include clay pot rice promotions, homemade Chinese New Year pudding, Chinese specials and a special menu for Valentine’s Day.
It just leaves me to say Kung Hei Fat Choi and to wish you and your family health and wealth for the Year of the Rat!
