security lock
iconFor reasons of security the door code will be changed at the end of the season. If you wish to use the lodge as a day visitor please contact the bookings officer or any committee member for the code. It is a legal requirement under our insurance policy that all visitors to the club register with the bookings officer.
These are due soon (November 1) and, following the AGM, you will receive an email invoice from the club with your confirmed subscription amount.                   
Please pay promptly.
The email will also include the personal details that we have on record, please check these and notify the club of any additions or alterations.  This is particularly important as people change their email and mobile phone details and we lose contact and 
if subs are not paid for 2 years then the membership is relinquished.

Refund Cheques
Please bank any refund cheques from winter.

Children in lodge

1.  The club rule stating that children must be 4 at time of their stay is both well known and long standing.   At times (early and late in the season) some discretion has been applied.
However, due to an incident this season, the club sought legal advice regarding this rule and, acting on that advice, must now strictly enforce the rule.  This means the age restriction will apply for the entire year and include day visitors as well.

2.  Members are reminded, that when staying at the club, children 16 years and under must be under parental supervision.
