The future of ABC THE RESULT

ABC wish everyone good health in this difficult time.

The committee have received so many questions about the result of the ballot that we have decided to publish this notice.

Thanks to everyone who took the time and trouble to express their opinion by voting in the recent ballot,

The result of about 400 votes were  in excess of 93% in support of ABC going independent. Your committee have been working hard to set the club on its way.

THE CLUB IS ‘LIVE’ FROM TO DAY 1st of April 2020.

Sadly the coronavirus has restricted our events and currently we are unable to accept bookings for any of our trips/events. We are hoping to review this on the 1st of June 2020.
As a new club we are looking for support from prospective members and  have included a membership application  form on this notice.

From 1st of June 2020 only members of the new club will be eligible to book trips/events

Membership Form April 2020

BOOKINGS SUSPENDED

The events sub committee are experiencing problems as are many organisations.

Our software has an issue and our service company have priority systems that must be maintained, our system is not a priority.

Sadly we are also experiencing contact issues with our travel companies and hotels.

As a sub committee we are are finding it difficult to maintain the service which you rightly would expect.

We have. therefore, made the difficult decision to suspend all bookings until further notice.  This will be reviewed in June 2020.

BOOKINGS FOR MAMMA MIA REMAIN AVAILABLE

Any bookings already received will be retained, on your behalf until we are advised that the event will take place’

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MORE BOOKING FORMS UNTIL YOU ARE ADVISED.

The future (or not) of ABC Sports & Social Club

At a recent Management meeting of the WMP Main Club Sports & Wellbeing Association a proposal was submitted that all local clubs amalgamate to form one club.

ABC reps opposed the proposal on the basis that it would not benefit to ABC members. ABC is the most proactive club in the Association.

The change means ABC will cease to exist from 1st of April 2020. Currently ABC receive 37p in every pound that you pay as a subscription the Main Club retain the balance, 63p, from April 2020 the main club will retain every penny. Currently ABC Subsidise all our events, in future a central committee would decide the subsidy and indeed all decisions, e.g., if the event should take place, the cost and any subsidy that should be applied to the trip.

Your committee has decided that if there is sufficient support from members and other interested parties, we will take ABC out of the Association and carry on as we currently do.

By being independent 100% of your subscription would then be retained by the ABC committee to be applied to events etc for the benefit of members of the new ABC.

This means we can charge a smaller subscription and in addition, in the first year of membership a further reduction of £5.00 in order, for those eligible, to purchase a Blue Light Card. Blue Light Cards are acceptable in many shops and restaurants and the discount you receive could actually cover the cost of your annual subscription.

To launch the new club we must have support. At this stage if you are interested it will be open to all serving or retired officers and staff regardless of where they work.
