Further to the news update email of 9th January, the committee are pleased to announce that Mark Nicholson will take over management of the bar from Monday 28th January.
Following Tim Donald's departure we have investigated several options including the committee managing the bar and employing bar staff or employing an expert from outside the club to take on the responsibility. After careful consideration, we have reached the conclusion that the latter was the best option and that Mark Nicholson is the right person for the job.
Many of you will know Mark from the time when he (very effectively) ran the bar from 2014 - 2016.
Mark will be employing bar staff shortly, but in the meantime he will man the bar himself in order to reacquaint himself with all the bar procedures and get to know members. Dean or other committee members may also help out behind the bar in the next couple of weeks.
Standard bar hours will be 5.15pm to 9.15pm Monday to Friday and 12.00pm to 3.00pm on Saturdays. Longer hours will apply when the teams are playing.
Emma will continue to run the bar on Friday evenings and Mick Adams will continue to run Monday social squash. Mick has also kindly offered to get more involved in the social side of the club and will be the main organiser of the new Sunday evening club night and special occasions such as Saturday afternoon social tournaments or ‘one off’ events like this weekend's Open Day. Needless to say Mark and Mick will work closely together to promote these activities.
Please join us in making Mark and the new bar staff feel welcome at the club.
