18 December 2017
The trustees are currently going through a formal process to legalise the running of the Hall & Club which involves offering an occupational licence to any community organisations or private organisations that wish to take on the management and running of a bar/café area. The trustees' Invitation to submit an Expression of Interest (see below) has a closing date of 31st December 2017. With this timescale in mind, and with the offers of help and assistance that the club management committee has received, those currently running the Village Club have decided (with the agreement of the trustees) that it now seems possible and reasonable to keep the CLUB OPEN DURING THE FESTIVE PERIOD until the end of January, when the trustees will be in the position to award an occupational licence to the successful applicant or applicants.
The Club has also announced that as the club membership year expired at the end of September, no further subscription payments will be requested or membership cards issued, and that during this temporary extension period the Club will be open to everyone in the community.
