IMPORTANT - And now for something NEW concerning food bookings and events
We are pleased to announce that our new on-line meal and event booking facility is now ready to use this week. This will be used to book all meals which are ordered in advance, such as Quiet Thursdays, Friday Supper and Sunday Roasts. You will still always be able to turn up and get snacks at weekends without booking, so this just relates to meals booked in advance. Furthermore, you will now be able to book tickets for events using the same service, giving you access to book 24/7, whenever it suits you.
The new facility will allow you to pay at the time of booking via credit card or PayPal, by using your red card, or on the day of the event/meal at the Club. This again will simplify the whole process. There will always be the added flexibility for you to have a dessert on the day, even if you haven’t booked it in advance, it’s just that you may not get your first choice if it wasn’t pre-ordered.
You will be able to access the system via the Club website, you will see that one of the red buttons on the left hand side now reads; ‘Food and Events’. Please click on this button and follow the simple instructions. Now select the date of the meal/event you wish to book for and fill in your details, you can if you wish allow other members to see that you are attending, alternatively, you can elect to opt out of this function if you wish. The system will remember your email address and when you access it a second time, it will auto-populate your details fields, again saving you time. At the conclusion of your booking you will receive an email confirmation.
So, with our new chef’s food being met with great acclaim, we look forward to seeing you soon at the Club.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MEALS FOR THIS COMING FRIDAY AND SUNDAY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO BOOK UNTIL MIDDAY TOMORROW (27th September).
In future, meals and events will be scheduled some weeks in advance, it is just for this week that you will not be able to access it until 1200hrs on Wednesday 27th September.
This is all part of the continued programme to update the Club systems to make life easier for the members and for booking systems to operate more efficiently.
