As you are all well aware, the costs of Utility bills are going to increase considerably (50% +!) over the next twelve months. At our last Board meeting (all Board minutes are on the Board site by the rink lights cupboard) we considered a variety of options with regards absorbing these costs.
These included – raising indoor rink fees and introducing outdoor rink fees. It was agreed that increasing rink fees may impact on the amount of time that members would play. As members return after a difficult two years we would not want to deter their return. As a result, it was agreed to raise all the membership category fees by 10% and leave the rink fees as they currently are.
I will be sending out invoices over the next three days for Combined and Outdoor categories. I will also send out Indoor invoices for those who wish to play all year round. The Indoor invoices for those who start to play in September/October will be sent out and will be due the week before the Indoor season starts.
So Membership Fees for 2022/23 will be –
1. Combined – £220,
2. Outdoor only – £165,
3. Indoor only – £120,
4. Social £5.50. Category A removed
5. New members will pay 50% for their first season.
Have a nice Easter weekend, its looking great out there!
