Dear DSBC and DUC members
With membership renewal season upon us, the most common question being asked by renewing members is, “ When are we expecting to move to the new clubhouse.” At this stage the contractor is on target to complete the scope of work on the promenade under which the new clubhouse is accommodated during September / October, after which the premises will be handed over to the clubs to begin fitting out.
As to when we will actually be sitting with our toes in the sand, that is a bit more difficult to answer due to the many variables involved.
The committees of both clubs are busy with planning the future move and detailed plans have been drawn up and are in the process of being fine-tuned before being put forward to the membership for comment. As the club is getting a “box” with a power point, water point, front glass and back wall, there is the opportunity for club members to put their hands up when it comes to being considered for providing the requirements for fitting out the clubhouse.
To ensure transparency and the best value for your membership buck, the committees are looking at obtaining at least three quotes before any work on fitting out the club is awarded. Starting with the basics, the committees will soon be looking at electrical, plumbing, brickwork, dry walling and IT infrastructure to start off with. If you think that you have a service or product that the club may require for the fit out, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
Attached are some pictures of the temporary structure as it was when PWC first moved in November 2017 and what it looks like today with the construction going on around it. Also attached is a recent picture of the new promenade under which the new permanent PWC clubhouse will be situated. We hope that you are excited about our future as we are.
The PWC Committee
