Art, Bridge and Backgammon
I must thank Paul Mendelson for the increased popularity of his online bridge lessons and to Kate Blake and the Bridge Committee for organising a full week of bridge sessions. Chris and Gill Bray are keeping your backgammon skills sharp as well so thank you both. The Art Group led by Richard Ramsey and Sarah Owens continue to provide a full programme of online lectures and classes.
2021 Subscription renewals and waiting list
As we hope we are over half way through this lockdown the staff are consistently thinking of more ways to keep Members engaged both mentally and physically and are active in preparing the Club to be in the best shape to welcome Members back.
The Board has been listening to the wish of some Members for the Club to offer a compensation gesture to reflect the period of closure for this year. It is very grateful to all Members for renewing their 2021 subscriptions and sustaining the Club at this very difficult time for all.
The Board is considering what options it has to offer such a gesture and it will be able to confirm this in March. If any Member is suffering any particular financial hardship in paying their subscriptions please can they contact me so I can see what help the Club can offer. I am pleased to report that the waiting list remains very strong at still a two year wait to join with the number of resignations in 2020 only slightly higher than at the end of 2019.
