2009 Chairman’s Report

30 12 2009

It is pleasing to note that the work carried out in the last 18 months or so to enable the Club to become more energy efficient has had a positive effect in that we have stabilised our costs that, in turn, has helped our overall financial position and we have recorded a reasonable profit on our accounts this year which, given the difficult financial climate, must be seen as a very positive result. On your behalf the management committee strive to reduce our overheads and we have introduced some minor changes to cleaning and bar arrangements during the quieter winter period that will help our financial stability.

Generally, it has been a good year on the sporting front for the Club and membership levels remain healthy in all sections. In particular, I would like to highlight the excellent work undertaken by the squash section in bringing the first ever national Squash Masters tournament to the club which was a resounding success and thanks go to Keith Gristwood for his excellent work in organising such a prestigious event. The cricket section have also had further acknowledgement for the condition of the ground which has been in pristine condition throughout the year – well done to all concerned.

Members can be rest assured that the management committee will continue to work tirelessly on their behalf to ensure that facilities remain of a high standard and continue to be at a reasonable cost. My thanks go again to all members of the management committee who, without their help, the club could not function as effectively and efficiently as it presently does.
