New Clubhouse Update
New Clubhouse Update

We have been planning and saving for our own Clubhouse for what seems a long time but finally everything is coming together.

The Clubhouse, located within easy walking distance to the Hawks Nest Shopping Precinct, will provide a carpeted playing area to comfortably accommodate 24 tables and a services area including tea room, toilets and office.  It will be available also for use by other similar community organisations, at a modest fee which will help our cash flow.

The Briefing Session in January 2016 gave unanimous approval to lodge the Development Application with Council for the Clubhouse as per the plans exhibited.

Following receipt of Council approval of our DA, a Special General Meeting was held on 21st April 2017 where Members gave their unanimous approval for the motion to proceed with the construction of our Clubhouse.

With Council approval to proceed, the contract for construction of the Clubhouse was signed on 8 June 2017.

The construction phase began in August 2017 and was completed in January 2018.  We held our first session, hosting the Grange Bridge Group, on Monday 29 January. The Official Opening Ceremony is scheduled for 23 March 2018.

We will, however, continue with fundraising efforts to reduce our indebtedness and the early repayment of loans received from Members and a loan from the Australian Bridge Federation.

Potential Donors are invited to contact the Secretary for further information.

An ongoing search for funds for the proposed clubhouse identified $500,000 under the MidCoast Stronger Communities Grant scheme.  There were 70 applications but an excellent case crafted by Charlie Shuetrim resulted in HNBC being one of the 17 successful applicants.  On 30th November, President Glenn Conroy and Vice President Bea Treharne, received a cheque for $33,000 so bringing our ability to fund the proposed clubhouse very much closer.  We are most grateful for the support from the NSW Government & MidCoast Council.  In 2015 the NSW Government also awarded us a $50,000 Community Building Partnership grant.
