Newsletter – August 2021
Dear Residents and Neighbours
The Club has been open since May and as restrictions have been gradually lifted life has begun to look a little more like normal. Although we follow Government guidelines, we appreciate that many Residents are concerned about the spread of Covid and therefore the Club have strict procedures and cleaning regimes in place with hand sanitisers in reception and at strategic points around the premises.
Face Masks are optional however many visitors prefer to continue wearing them and we would request that everyone respects the social distancing practices of individual members as far as practical.
Hopefully as the vaccination programme and reduction in the serious consequences of the virus continues to be brought under control, we can all relax a little more and confidence will return.
What better way to start to reconnect with your friends and neighbours in a safe secure environment close to home with no need to travel any distance.
After many years of service to the residents Paul Howarth and Geoff Higginbotham have stepped down from MANCO however, they continue to support us, and we thank them for all their efforts and service.
Joining Tommy Boyne and Chris Morley on the Trustees Committee will be Trevor Megson, Rob Dawson and Peter Brickenden who have been co-opted to the board subject to approval at the next AGM.
The AGM is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 27th October at 7pm in the main lounge. Formal notice will be sent together with the agenda no later than 21 days prior to the meeting as prescribed by the articles of the association.
Keeping in Touch
Maintaining regular contact with our Residents is important and our aim is to once again publish a monthly newsletter with news of upcoming events and important information on Estate matters.
Whilst a paper Newsletter is important to our Neighbours who do not have access to the Internet and will still require a paper copy most Residents do have email.
To save paper and reduce costs we would encourage those Residents who have not yet signed up to email communications from MANCO and the Club to do so. Please find attached the data protection consent form.
About 50% of our community have already signed up and to add your address to the email distribution system we will require the data protection consent form to be signed and returned to the Club reception. This is a legal requirement and will allow us to provide more up to date information on a regular basis.
If you are unable to come to reception, then please call the Club and we will arrange collection.
Help save the planet and sign up to our email distribution system.
In addition we will start to build our Web Site www.ladybridgepark.com where more information will be added over the next few weeks including opening times, price lists, events, social activities organised by the club or outside associations that may be of interest to Residents.
We also have a Facebook page: Ladybridge Park
