It’s been a busy few weeks! There’s a lot to cover here… let’s start with the most urgent.
New venue: Mayfield School
As most of you know by now, St Edmunds decided that they would no longer staff the venue to the hours needed for our session. Next week (Monday 18th October) will be our last session in St Edmunds.
After half term (starting November 1st) we will be meeting in Mayfield School. The time slots will be the same, but due to other activities running in the sports hall during the first half of the junior session, junior and senior sessions will run in separate spaces.
- Juniors – 6:30-7:30pm, Mayfield School main hall
- Seniors – 7pm-9pm, Mayfield School sports hall
The entrance to the venue is on Kensington Road; there is free street parking, and there’s enough space that you shouldn’t struggle to get a spot.
Our chairwoman of many years and member for even longer, Val Yearworth, is taking a well deserved retirement from her duties.
The new chairperson will be Joash Lewis, and Veronique Meheut becomes the new Treasurer. Thomas Carrel is also joining the committee.
Fees increase incoming (not immediate)
We have kept club fees as low as possible and relied on other income and reserves; however the time has come where we must increase the membership fees to stay afloat. The committee voted to increase the membership fee to £20/month; however the date the new fee commences has not yet been decided – you’ll be updated once we’ve figured that part out.
