All the club’s plans for this season have, quite rightly, been put on hold due to the current outbreak of coronavirus. The County and League Committees agreed to cancel all competitions and league matches until the end of June. The possible start date in July may, if necessary, be further delayed.
With the Club already having spent a considerable amount on County and League fees plus work on the green etc. the finances will take a knock this year but the Members have been rallying around with two thirds already having paid their subscriptions to date. The biggest loss will be from the lack of income from rink fees which each member pays when playing in a match. Fortunately, we had a decent bank balance at the end of last season so we will have a much better chance to cope with the loss this year than many of the clubs in this area.
If the situation improves and we can make a start in July this will be a great help as well as it will be good to be able get out on the green again and hopefully carry on with some of the things which we had planned for this year.
