Clubhouse kitchen given 4* rating by Cheshire East

Following an inspection by Cheshire East Council, our kitchen has been rated Grade 4 (out of 5) on the Food Standard Agency ratings system.

Considering the amount of usage the kitchen gets, this is a very good result and thanks must go to our cleaners (Sparkling Clean Cheshire) and Jacqui Garvey, who uses the kitchen every morning.

There is still room for improvement, so when using the kitchen can members please remember to leave it in as good a state as they found it.

Upcoming Clubhouse Events

The next main event is over the bank holiday weekend at the end of August.  The Hidden Beer and Cider Festival

In addition, I know its a long way off, but I've booked a live band and disco for Saturday 17 December 2016 for a Chairman's Christmas Concert.  This will be free to members and other halves, so please come along and celebrate with us.  It's likely that we will also have a New Year event in the Club House, so if you havent made arrangements already, keep the date free.

Thanks

Dave Clayton, Chairman

Day Time Squash

Squash Players ,

Quite a few members are now available to play during the daytime , either because they work from home office , or they have retired etc .

Someone mentioned the idea of identifying this group so they could organise games during the day / organise a daytime ladder / afternoon round robin etc .

So purpose  of this communication is if you like to play during the day and want to be included , let me know , plus any preferred slot , ie lunch / afternoons etc , and I will compile a list .

Cheers Bill

Squash club appeal

All , please read what follows if you are interested in your squash club .

In a nutshell , squash are not making a satisfactory contribution to the running of our private members facility at Mereheath Lane .

Two stand out reasons :

  1. No one comes forward to be on the squash committee . Myself / Geoff / Tony / Jon , have held our posts for far too long .

ACTION – think about  volunteering  to be Chairman / Treasurer / Secretary etc . None of these roles are time consuming .

  1. We have had no one on the Main Club Committee for ages and are missing out . The current committee consists of Cricket ( 2 ) , Tennis ( 2 ) , Archery ( 1 ) , and this team vote and allocate on some considerable funds that benefit the club . I attended the Main Club AGM last night , much attendance from all sections , but just me and Geoff from squash . There was one unfilled committee role for the coming year , that of secretary .

ACTION – we need a squash member to become main club secretary . Again not a time consuming role , but high impact in terms of squash playing a role and having a voice .

Contact me if you want more details , Bill
