We have had a good year to date due to successful
hosting of outside events (NWS finals and Surrey competitions), our own
fundraising efforts and reduced expenditure on green and equipment
maintenance. Many thanks are due to the helpers, supporters and attendees
at these events and those who give their time to maintain the upkeep of the
club. We anticipate making a good surplus this year and Committee have agreed
to use this to offset our depreciation charges in future years’ budgets,
thereby reducing pressure on next year’s and future budgets.
Nevertheless the absence of any external hosting of events next year together
with general increases in costs has still left us with a potential budget
shortfall for next year. To address this Committee have agreed a modest
£1.00 increase in subscriptions for next year to £84.00 (£168.00 including
Sports Club subscription) for full members. New members fees will be
discounted to £45.00 (£129) for their first year. Match fees will also
increase to £3, the first increase in several years, to help offset increased
Committee is constantly looking for cost savings and other sources of revenue,
including sponsorships. If you are aware of any potential sponsors or
advertisers, please let Ken Homewood know. In the meantime, please join
Easyfundraising.org and use it where you can for any internet purchases,
including travel and holidays. The few members who are currently using it
raise about £80 for us each year; please join with them.
We have damage to the green caused by the tree
roots from a neighbouring garden. We have contacted the neighbour but at the
moment we have not had a positive response. We have decided that we have to act
as delay will only increase the damage, so work will start in mid-February so
that the green will be playable for the beginning of the season.
