  • September takings down by £1,200.
  • GP % has dropped but we are paying extra on our barrels to repay loan. Trevor banks expressed that the sugar tax is yet to be passed on to our consumers.
  • The list for lifetime members has gone missing but we believe there are some people who still owe their monthly payments. We need to speak to these people: Completed
  • Lifetime membership cards need to be designed and sourced: Completed JB
  • Alarm agreement has now ended and will show next month.
  • Entertainment is down £470 which is disappointing. It was suggested this was due to lack of advertising of main events and the cancellation of bar Olympics. It was suggested that bar Olympics be held during December as participants will be in the festive mood and main holiday season will have ended. JW & JB consult if this could work.




  • David expressed that the event was lacking advertising and suggested radio adverts and banners for highlight larger events.


  • Christmas hamper draw tickets have started to sell.
  • Abba ticket sales have been disappointing even with the large push of late, it is thought this event may break even.




  • Staff meeting overdue, yet there has not been time for this with other pressing matters needing attention. JW and JB to speak to staff individually regarding cleaning etc.
  • Gin Fizz event – Adnams have supplied a selection of glasses, chalk boards and posters, they are happy to assist in other ways also. SB suggested that the gin range needed to be revamped as this was a trend which we could make work for us. JB and SB have purchased a selection by Whitley Niell and it is selling extremely well.
  • We are still awaiting a boiler quote JB & JW to chase.



Trust Report

  • They are currently considering the funding and precept for next year, is there anything we need?
