Subscription Renewal 1st April 2020

Dear members,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these very difficult times for all.

As a board of directors, we understand that some of you will find yourselves in a position of financial difficulty or job insecurity, but it falls to us to manage the club’s finances in a way that keeps Whitstable & Seasalter Golf club ready for when this situation abates, your club needs your help.

The annual subscription now due has come at a very difficult time for all of us but we would very much appreciate your renewal either by way of the full amount due or by way of the monthly standing order. We still have a club to run, a course that must be maintained and bills to pay. Even in these difficult times, we all want the club to be able to be available for members to play and socialise as soon as we are allowed to open. Please remember your subscription payments are the club’s main source of income.

This being so we know some members are in financial difficulties due to the present situation that is affecting all of us throughout the country.

The directors have therefore agreed the following:

Members who are able to support the club by paying fees whilst we are closed will receive a credit of three months subscriptions next year (April, May and June 2021). You would therefore not pay for those months. To be able to make this happen you will need to have advised the office and made your payment/set up payment order by 30th April 2020.

Those who are unfortunately unable to pay because of financial difficulties please can you advise the office (e-mail is preferred) to discuss your situation with us. If you would like to talk to the Secretary or a director, please send us a number and preferred time of contact. All discussions will remain confidential.

If you are not going to re-join then please let the office know.  Unfortunately, the club rules are that if subs are not paid or arrangements not made as above by 30th May your membership will lapse. Obviously we would not want that to happen.

Whitstable & Seasalter is a members’ club and we hope that all of you will understand the difficult times we are all in and support your club and we thank those who have already paid. We WANT the club to prosper once the country returns to a more normal state.

Your support is vital for our future.

Board of Directors.
March 2020.
