Dear Members and Shareholders,
Following the thoroughly enjoyable day Jean and I had on President’s Day I want to update you on my project to replace the club furniture. As you know Jean and I opened the project with a donation and since President’s Day we have had several more from members and promises of donations from others.
We are aiming to replace the furniture after completion of the Sport England development programme which will give us till the early Autumn to finalise our fund raising efforts. We will then have a truly excellent facility.
The cost of replacing the furniture with appropriate quality chairs and tables will be substantial. I have set up a small working group of Jean, Pauline Henderson and Jim Davies to investigate furniture options and costs. Following this group reporting back to the Board with their findings and recommendations, we will report back to you.
As I have said the cost of replacing the furniture will be substantial and I’m asking you the members and shareholders for your support by making your own donation to the fund. The more donations we receive will mean we can expedite the project sooner. We will be tracking how the fund is growing and will post the information monthly on the notice board.
It will mean a great deal to Jean and me to see the project come to fruition. If you wish to make a donation just put your cheque or cash, any amount will be appreciated, in a sealed envelope. Put your name on the envelope, or if you prefer anonymously, mark it for the Furniture Project and hand it in over the bar. Alternatively, send your donation by post to the club marked for the attention of the Treasurer.
Thank you for your support.
