JULY 2022

Dear Members

The Queen’s Jubilee was a celebrated in the club and it was a good to see so many members some of whom had not been to an event since Covid struck, and have since been in again.

A questionnaire was given out and responses are still being received, on the whole they have been positive but inevitably some not so. One item I will act on straight away we were asked to have some non alcoholic and chocolate raffle prizes on a Saturday night this will happen as of this week. Next month we will give you further updates.

We are still receiving membership requests and it is good to see we are getting a wide age group from 30 to 90. If you see a new member introduce yourself and help to make them welcome into the club. Occasionally we have members that are new to the area and do not know any members so do make it easy for them, to mix in.

Yours

Janet Goff

Dear members

In order that we can continue to keep pace with the wishes/interests of the members of the Club, we are asking for your feedback and would be very grateful if you could spare a few minutes to consider the following:-

1.  How would you feel about having a monthly (or fortnightly) lunch club – possibly on a Tuesday or Wednesday?   This would offer the chance of meeting up with friends, making new ones – with a light affordable lunch – and we could further develop this with additional activities if people wished.

2.  Would you like the option of a smaller plate for some meals – at a lower price?

3.  Would you like the option of having a basket meal on entertainment nights?

4.  Do you have any other positive suggestions and ideas for any aspect of the Club activities which could be discussed by the committee to further improve our offer.

We would be happy to receive your answers by email  to pca@chichestercityclub.co.uk or please pick up a questionnaire from the Club.

Many thanks

The Committee

FEBRUARY 2022

We are now emerging from Covid restrictions, but we should all be mindful that this has not disappeared and remember to take sensible care and not visit the club if you have any signs that you may have covid or even flu. We want all members to stay safe and well.

The charity year is coming to a close which on this occasion has run for two years, to endeavour to increase our donations we will be holding a charity quiz on Saturday the 5th March and would be grateful for any donations to the raffle to support the event. The new charity starting on the 14th March will be shared between two charities, Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Selsey Branch) and Motor Neurone Disease Association.

We offer to our members cash back from the till but this can only happen when we have sufficient funds and their will be times this will be refused and we will be limiting this to £50 per transaction unless we have unusually high takings.

Can I please remind all members and the committee that the only persons permitted behind the bar are the Stewards and the Staff, the only time anyone else can go behind the bar is if they have been invited by the staff.

JANUARY 2022

Hi one and all

We have reached a New Year, December saw Christmas lunches with live entertainment they were well supported and enjoyed by all.

We have also had a jazz evening in January this did not draw in many additional members and will not be rebooked for the next few months.

New Years Eve was very quiet compared to previous years but those that attended appreciated we had live entertainment and it was a fun evening, the low attendance was I believe due to the government asking everyone to be cautions.

Unfortunately in the New Year the kitchen was unable to reopen due to Covid but it is once again open.

Going forward as things are now looking more positive we will be booking some excursions/ shows any suggestions please let a member of the committee know, watch the notice board and web page for updates. The Turkey and Tinsel weekend is going fast.

With the New Year, at this time we are not sure how many members have renewed their membership we will be looking at this over the next two weeks and contacting those we have not heard from.

I hope that we see all the old and new members in the club over the year at the different events, always please keep safe and well.

Hello Everyone

I would like to take this opportunity to give a brief update, we have had three very busy Sundays with Christmas lunches followed by music, these have been enjoyed by all and it was good to see the club busy and seeing members that hadn’t been out in a long time.

We will be holding our annual Christmas raffle this Saturday 18th and music is booked for Christmas Eve and New Year, I hope that you will be able to come along.

Myself and the committee would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year but the most important thing is for you all to keep safe.
