Heating of the bridge room.

Notice to Members from the President.

Below is a mail which I received from the Executive Secretary of Westmanstown sports Centre.

Good morning Billy.

I am very disappointed to hear that the situation has not improved.  The last thing we want is to upset anyone using our facility.

I will speak with Dick and Tony this morning and have the matter immediately addressed.

We will put a process in place where staff will confirm that the heat has been put on in the room in advance and during your booking.

I will revert when this process is confirmed.





Hopefully the situation with the heating in our Bridge Room will now be resolved.

Billy Breen

Notes from your president Billy Breen.

The funding of the Parc Project gets under way over the coming weeks with the 4 participating clubs,

Westmanstown, Castleknock, D15 and St. Brigids beginning their regular contributions towards the building fund.

I would like to offer my sincere thanks to all our members for their financial commitment and support of the project.

 The 15 members of the board meet once a month and all are working very hard to get this project off the ground.

Our representatives on the board Clare and Kevin, both very much committed to the project but also ensuring the best interest of Westmanstown Bridge Club are met.      

The fund-raising sub-committee of PARC have been very active and are planning a number of different events over the coming months with the emphasis on enjoyment for all who take part.

I will keep you informed well in advance of each event.

And on that very topic Sally Burke, who by the way is not on the board but a member of the fund-raising committee

is running a TABLE QUIZ in aid of the project on Friday 11th. October in St. Perigines GAA Club at 9pm.

News Flash

PARC UPDATE: Latest news on the P.A.R.C. project.

Update from President Billy Breen

 In line with the Club Presidents policy of keeping members

informed this is where things stand with the project at the moment

The  “Phoenix Active retirement Centre” (or PARC as we like to call it)

a company limited by guarantee has been established and an application

for charity status has been made

There is a committee formed of 15 people, comprised of 7 members and

two representatives of each of the 4 participating clubs

The board meets once a month and have been dealing with the many

different aspects required to setting up the company Financial planning

Fundraising, Site investigations to mention just some of the things

that are being actively pursued by the various sub committees that have

been set up A constitution has been drawn up and we have registered

with Revenue Commissioners Company Registration Office and

Charity Regulator A number of sites in the area are being looked at as

possibilities for our Centre Donations have already begun to flow into

the PARC bank account from bridge players outside the region on

hearing of our plans The overall four-year plan is as follows

The four clubs involved will raise about €130,000   (8.6%)

The Directors of the Company will raise another €170,000

by arranging new events outside bridge to suit our age profiles

(11%) The remaining (78%) will be achieved through grants

and mortgage This will give us a budget of about €1.5 million    

We will be looking for a central site at economic cost and

hopefully avail of an existing car park
 It is worthwhile mentioning that whatever monies the clubs

raise (or individuals donate) will be treated as a loan and in

the event that the project fails (costs or inability to get the right site)

 then that money will be refunded in full to the clubs and the clubs

will reimburse the members accordingly You the members will be

raising about 8.7% of the cost and that is a refundable loan if the

project fails The Directors will be raising the other 91.3% 

Your committee has decided the fairest way to meet our financial

commitment is a yearly levy €45 Increasing the table money will

penalises the regular player so we decided to go with the lump sum
