New helpers urgently needed, please read...

Good morning members,

Running a successful bar and catering operation is vital to the club’s fortunes. As well as providing the majority of our income, it also creates the social, fun environment for families and the local community to enjoy.

We rely on volunteers to supplement paid staff in the bar and kitchen, and our club would not be where it is today without their important contribution. Again for this year it's our intention to have the bar open during all matches and to provide food at selected junior matches and events.

But it doesn’t run itself. We are extremely grateful to key members of our Executive Committee, along with a small group of volunteers who have provided amazing support in recent years. However, the group definitely is in need of new people to help spread the load. Here’s what we’re looking for:

Bar – Volunteers to assist with running the bar for midweek junior matches (usually 2-3 hours), and Saturday / Sunday matches (whatever time you can spare from 2-5pm). Our paid staff tend to cover busier times, so we can make it as stress-free as possible for our volunteers!

Kitchen – Volunteers to assist with providing a food offering for junior matches, particularly on a Sunday morning (mostly likely a couple of hours total). Our kitchen was recently upgraded, and all food / equipment is provided and ready to go.

Any surplus we make each year is reinvested into improving our facilities, for the benefit of all members. Times where we are unable to offer food and drink are missed opportunities for us, and ultimately result in slower improvements to our club.

Please consider helping out if you can, even a handful of hours a year is important and will contribute to us maintaining and increasing our income.

We are holding a volunteers training session in early April, so if you are interested in joining the team, please get in touch (contact details below). Many thanks in advance of any support you can offer.
