Christmas Staff Fund
As you know gratuities for staff are not a tradition in the Club. However, following on from 2017, the Flag Officers propose that the same process will run again in 2018. This will enable Members to show their appreciation for the Club staff given the Christmas festive period is a time when such gestures are appropriate.
The Staff Fund allows Members to show our gratitude to all our employed staff, whether on the water, in the Bar, in the Restaurant or in the Office.
From 18 December 2018 to 2 January 2019, if you so wish, you will be able to contribute to this fund. The following methods are available: Cash or cheque left at the office or cheque posted to the office, in each case in a sealed envelope addressed to the Club Accounts – Jo Salmon; cheques should be payable to the Club and marked “Christmas Staff Fund” on the back. You may use a debit or credit card - please do so only through Steve Shaw or Jo Salmon (Accounts) – please contact by phone or email to make arrangements.
After 2 January 2019, we will calculate the total amount received and divide it among our currently employed staff (except for Steve Shaw, who has requested he should not participate). The fund will be distributed to staff with the first pay packet after 2 January. We intend to provide anonymity for all contributions.
The Flag Officers believe this fund is a good way of recognizing, at the festive season, the significant contribution that our employed staff make to the life of the Club.
