As the club is a members club and run ‘on trust’ the following procedures must be followed:
Members should ensure the club is secure at all times. It is important that the last person leaving the building ensures that all lights and fans are turned off together with locking the front door. Members should ensure that they leave the club in a clean and tidy condition, including disposing of used cans and bottles.
Drinks and other consumables must be paid for at the time of purchase using the till behind the bar, and details of all purchases recorded accurately on the sheet.
Drinks glasses are not permitted on the ground floor of the club under any circumstances. All glasses used in the bar should be washed up after use.
Paper or plastic cups should be used for drinks during the game and should be disposed of after the game, and reusable plastic cups washed up.
Inform the Membership Secretary ([email protected]) if any of your contact details change, or you wish to stop your membership.
In exceptional circumstances membership and fees can be suspended for short periods.
