Well, I know that it isn’t a week, but there is so much to tell you. Things have been happening in the last few days, and I wanted to share them with you, so let’s get cracking.
First off, it would be great to hear from you. So, we have set up an email address for members to contact me directly, instead of going through the office. If you have any thoughts, or suggestions (please keep them clean!), then please send them to me on: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to reply. If you are asking a question for which I do not have an answer, I will attempt to forward your query to someone who would know.
I would love your feedback anyway, and the first blog seems to have proved useful and a bit of a laugh for you. The next ones will probably be a bit of a mixture of business and pleasure, so please bear with me. In the main, they will be weekly, but whilst we are setting up, they may come a bit more often.
Right, to business….
Mark Shea has come up with a brilliant idea. If there are any members who have difficulty getting out now, and cannot shop for their groceries or their prescriptions, then we could set up a list of volunteers who could help. If you feel that you could do this, then please contact me with an area which you would be prepared to cover, and we will start to make a list. Mark has already put his name on the list – what a star! If you are a member who could do with some help, then again, please contact me with your home address and post code and we will attempt to pair you up with someone who lives close to you. I have no idea if this will work, but if we can look after each other, that would be just brilliant.
On another subject, BRS is still available, but the course is closed, and will be for the foreseeable future. As soon as we have the go ahead to open, you will be the first to know, so please bear with us. There are photos of the course, and it is looking really good. Now don’t get withdrawal symptoms, just think how fabulous it will be when we can play again We want to make sure that we will be hitting the ground running when lockdown is lifted, and we will use any method available to let you know, so please keep an eye on the blog, the website, as well as Greg’s facebook page on: Leek Golf Club Pro Shop and the Club facebook page on: Leek Golf Club in order to keep you informed.
Regarding competitions and events, we will try to keep you informed of what is happening and what has hit the buffers. Some of these will be blatantly obvious as we may still be in lockdown, but we will do out best to keep you all up to date.
By the way, have you looked at Greg’s facebook? It is fantastic, and very funny. Please watch the video about chipping on Leek Golf Club Pro Shop. It really is worth a look and is totally hilarious. Thanks to Greg for brightening my day. I know that one member has already cleaned and sorted out his bag and is ready for the off. Have you done yours yet? How long has that banana been in there? Is there anything else l lurking in the depths?
Talking about finding things you hadn’t seen for ages, our Chair, Trevor, has been cleaning out his garage, and has found some family photographs which had been missing for a couple of years. Has anybody else found lost possessions? How many bin bags are you accumulating? Can’t wait to see the queue at the tip! Where are you keeping them? At what point will the world be overwhelmed by bin bags? Don’t forget to secure your rubbish and think of the people who will be collecting it.
STAY SAFE everyone, and so many thanks to our magnificent NHS.
Will be back with another instalment, commonly known as a blog in the next few days. Get in touch, would be great to hear from you.
Look after each other, don’t forget that everyone is special.
