Members will know we are required by law to ensure that only Members use the Club facilities. This has often proved difficult to enforce. The old Membership card system was also difficult and time consuming to manage.
Under the new system members will be issued with an electronic card which will entitle them to buy from the bar at Members prices.
Anyone without a card will be considered as a non-member and will be charged an extra premium for their drinks and require to be signed in as a guest.
We expect this will eliminate any abuse of the club and enable us to ensure we keep within the law.
Members are asked to renew as soon as possible and in any case before 1 June to help with the setting up of the new arrangements.
