How your Club is evolving
Dear Old Wilsonian Sports Club Members
Happy New Year to you and all your families.A big thank you to you all for being part of our family of Sports Clubs.
Our Club continues to thrive and that is purely down to our members and the committees who run our Clubs.We hope to be a Club the local community can be proud of and behind the scenes we have been working towards this goal. Over the coming year we will be changing our legal structure to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. We are working with Hewitsons LLP and their Charities team to hopefully have this in place by the end of the year. It will bring a number of benefits and remove the current financial risk we have due to our current legal structure.
At the recent AGM it was also agreed to trial a new structure to run the Sports Club and this will be implemented from the beginning of February. We have streamlined the current Council and formed a number of sub-committees that will be responsible for the day to day running of the club. The hope is for the Club to function in a much more efficient way, with all the subsidiary clubs being able to set budgets and plan much more strategically how the club is run.
Over the coming year we hope to make the following improvements to our Clubhouse facilities:·
Complete refurbishment of the inside of the bar area and social spaces·
New bar furniture·
New outside furniture for the balcony·
Refurbishment of ladies toilets and shower area·
Refurbishment and enlargement of men’s changing areas both upstairs and downstairs, including the creation of a flexible women’s/men’s changing area
Our Club is very much your club so if there are any areas you feel we could improve please contact someone from your committee or contact me direct.
Wishing you all a fantastic 2020 and I hope to see you all up the Club very soon.
President Old Wilsonian’s Association
