Coronavirus

Dear Members

Following the latest advice from both the EBU and HBA and the fact they have decided to cancel all their events with immediate effect.

The committee have therefore made the decision in the interest of health and safety of all our members to cancel all sessions forthwith.

We will advise you when sessions will resume but i envisage that this will not be for two months at the earliest.

I hope you understand why the committee has made this reluctant decision but the welfare of our members is of paramount importance.

Regards

David Eddleston

Chairman

WE ARE ON THE MOVE

Dear Members

I have to inform you that the committee have decided that it no longer tenable for us to remain at Bushey Sports Club.

This is because they have decided to increase the rent by nearly 100% per annum and also introduce parking charges.

We have managed to secure new premises and from 1st April 2020 we will be meeting at St Peter's Parish Hall, Bushey. WD23 1EA.

There is good parking across the street from the hall and free parking in short walking distance. 

Though I am sad that we are leaving our current venue, I am looking forward to this new chapter in the club's history.

I hope you will all continue to attend the club on a regular basis.

An email has been sent to all members setting out the reasons for the move and this can be viewed here Chairman's Statement

I am happy to answer any concerns you may have regarding the move.

Yours Sincerely

David Eddleston

Chairman
