HSSC Weekly Update Thu 14 Dec 17

From the Club Sec

Dear Members,

'A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all the Staff'

Tonight Christmas Carols in the Clubhouse - Come along and join in for an evening of carols followed by mulled wine, sausage rolls and mince pies. Open from 6pm, carols start at 6.30pm.

Tomorrow, Fri 15th Dec Staff Drinks and Christmas Draw - We hope as many members as possible will be available to come along and support the staff drinks and XMas raffle. Bar will be open from 1200. Raffle tickets are available for £1. A buffet will be provided.

Think Safety - As we have seen this last week the weather keeps changing from cold and frosty to wet and windy. Please be careful on the roads, jetties and pontoons as they can become very slippery. Be prepared for strong winds and ensure your boat is well secured.

Invoicing for 2017/18 - Your invoices for the forthcoming year have been emailed (or posted). If the invoice has not yet landed in your inbox please check your spam folder. If it has still not arrived, please email me and I will arrange to send from the main office email or by post.

Staff Fund - Following on from the Cdre's recent update to members (attached) the Executive Committee are keen to promote the Staff Fund. The aim of the fund is to provide a facility to members to reward staff for their endeavours throughout the year. Payments can be made online using your member no. followed by 'STAFF' as a reference or through the office.

Car Parking - Plans are in place to fell a tree at the entrance to the car park (across the road in FB3) on Wed 20 Dec. We will be aiming to keep the car park clear from Mon 18th Dec (alternative parking will be sign posted) in preparation.

Use of Car Park for Private use - Please do not use the car park for any off-site private use (i.e. visits to Gosport Town Centre). If you plan to use the car park for official business elsewhere please inform the security staff.

Archaeology Roman Wessex Course - Interested?? Course starts Wed 10th Jan 18 St Vincent College 7.00 - 9.00 pm for 10 weeks. Cost is £90. To sign up contact the college on 02392 583890. Flyer available from the office.
