Hello everyone. I'd be very grateful if you would make all of your
club members aware of the following asap:
1 there has been someone in the hall acting suspiciously. If
you are in the hall by yourself, maybe because you have popped in
for something, please lock the door behind you. This is with your own
safety and the honesty box money in mind.
2. when you leave ALL DOORS MUST BE LOCKED. If you have opened
any additional doors for fresh air etc, they must be locked behind
you. It's an obvious point, but if you leave the premises unlocked, we
are very vulnerable to theft or worse. Ask yourself how you'd feel if
other club's equipment was pinched or wrecked and it was your fault?
Or how you think you would persuade the insurers to cover for
stolen/damaged equipment when the door was left unlocked? Just don't
put yourself in that situation.
3 The bolts in the front door of the parish hall have to be
secured up and down. Otherwise, the double doors can be pushed open
even if they are locked. If you are not sure what I mean, I or Suzanne
will be happy to show you.
4 If you use the gates to access the rear garden (those near the
new 'garage'), please ensure the bolts are secured to keep the flat
tenant's dog in.
Finally, someone asked the pertinent question about whether we insure
clubs' own equipment. The answer is no, we only insure VHT
equipment; if it doesn't belong to us, we don't insure it. This has
always been the case, but it's worth a reminder.
Many thanks for your co-operation as always,
