With Christmas and the New Year fast approaching, I thought it would be good timing to update the
club’s members on what plans have been put in place for 2024.
I have had several conversations with our greenkeeper Andy Bate. All the back-end work was carried.
out immediately after the end of the season. Andy has been down to the green regularly to remove the
leaves and debris. The next stage is to prepare for the beginning of the season and work on the
green will be ongoing throughout 2024.
Members of the Committee have been to the green to shut down the club for the winter. While we
were there, we also inspected all the furniture and removed any items that were not up to standard.
A work party will be arranged around March time to tidy up the flower beds etc. There will be a
second work party to clear the gutters and lay the new carpet down. Please look out for dates as we
will be looking for volunteers.
The Awards Night will be held on Saturday, 20th January 2024 at the Churchtown Conservative Club.
Tickets with be available soon, so please join us for what is always a fun night.
Annual General Meeting
The AGM will be held on Monday, 19th February 2024, also at the Churchtown Conservative Club,
commencing at 8.00 pm. We would appreciate a good attendance.
Although we are not concerned about our membership numbers, there is going to be a focus on
recruitment in 2024. This will be through Open Days, supported by Social Media posts.
We still haven’t filled the vacancy for the position of Project Manager. The main duties are to
organise and oversee work parties and be responsible for any activity related the improvement of
the facilities. The position comes with a place on the committee. Please contact me if you have any
questions about this role and what is involved.
Volunteers are always welcome. We always require assistance with tasks such as gardening,
painting, cleaning, odd jobs etc. We are very lucky to have some helpful people at the club but it
would be great to have more members involved.
If you have any ideas to improve our club or have any questions about this update, please contact
me on 07761 733024.
I hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
