September 2016Welcome back everyone.I hope you all enjoyed the break, and that you are looking forward to all the Club activities that we have planned in the coming months.The volunteers have continued to be busy during the break and have been working hard to develop the Club and improve facilities and activities for members.The Club management committee met to plan events and trips for the next 12 months. You will find the details for all of these in the Club Newsletter.Emma and Michelle have been busy designing and developing a new web-site for the Club, bringing it up to date and easier to use.Eight of our volunteers have attended a first aid course and now qualified to administer first aid if necessary, either on Club meeting nights or when we go on trips. The new first aiders are in addition to a number of us who are already qualified, meaning that most of the volunteers are now first aid qualified.Michelle and I have been busy updating all our Club polices and procedures. We have met with Telford & Wrekin CVS who are helping us to write a new Club Constitution and other policies and procedures that are essential for a registered charity to have in place. The aim of this work is to bring these essential documents up to date and to provide a safer environment for the volunteers and members.Emma has been out buying more new games for the Club and these should be ready for you to use when we return on 8thSeptember. Finally, we have continued with our fund-raising and we have recently received a significant donation from David Hodson, who is the brother of member representative, Daniel Briggs. The Club is now in a strong position financially and we will be using the all money we have raised for the benefit of members.Kev Wynn Chairman for Club 2000
I just want to start by saying what a brilliant job the members did of putting together an amazing Panto this year and for all the volunteers that helped and supported the members it was a fantastic night. Well done to you all for all your hard work. Could I just ask that all members that have taxis, can they arrange that the taxi is booked for 8.45pm as this will give volunteers time to chase up the taxis if needed? Those members that arrive before 6:30 PM can I ask you not to arrive any earlier than the start of Club 2000 this is because volunteers don't start work until 6:30pm and if anything happens to you then we may not be there to help. The old Facebook page has now closed we are in the process of moving over pictures and videos, as there are so many of them is taking time so please bear with us. You can look for a new page on Facebook if you search for 'Official Club 2000', we will keep this updated with any news or information on the trips that will be going on in 2016!! Safeguarding - if you have any problems or concerns or worries please come and find myself Michelle Bragg or Rob Raine.
