Whiteknights News

There's a lot going on at Whiteknights and we want our members to be regularly updated.

 

Locker Project

We will be replacing all of the Gents Changing Room lockers this summer. We therefore need your support with the following; we will need all of the lockers in the Gents Changing rooms emptied by Friday 13th July 2018.

Any items that are not cleared from the lockers will be stored for a short period, however we do not have a huge amount of space to be storing items, therefore we really do need them all emptied by the stated date.

We will then scrapping the old lockers, with the new lockers being in place by early August.

I will then be re-issuing keys for the lockers immediately after the lockers are in place.

This means for those playing in the Summer Webber, you will have to bring bowls back and forth to the club for a short period while we replace the lockers, we very much regret any inconvenience caused during that period.

 

Many thanks

Members Satisfaction Survey Feedback

We promised to provide feedback to our members on the results of the Satisfaction Survey carried out in January.

Recently we published details of the ratings you gave us in 23 areas of the Club’s facilities and various bowling and social activities. Overall we achieved a performance rating of 86.7% (our target is 90% so we still have work to do).

A large number of the completed survey forms contained additional comments and we carefully read every one of them. We were pleased to receive many positive responses but your Board will be considering four topics which received the greatest number of adverse comments:

  1. The Club’s crowded bowling schedule

  2. Requirement to further improve member’s knowledge of Directors and Bowling Committee

  3. Catering

  4. Improvements to ladies and gents changing roomsWe will feed back to members the results of our deliberations and the action we will be taking on each of the above topics.There are many other suggestions raised by only a small number of members but which the Board feel should be implemented. We will take action on many of these suggestions over the next month or so.Thank you all for your continuing support.

Help us to celebrate

In the 2022/23 season Whiteknights will be celebrating its 50thAnniversary.

It may seem a long way off, but we are already looking at ways to mark this very important event for our Club.

We are planning to publish an illustrated booklet setting out the history of Whiteknights from the start to the present day; and this is where we need your help.

We would appreciate receiving any documents or photos/illustrations relating to any aspect of our Club’s history. These will be used to help prepare the booklet and, at the same time, form part of a central file of historical materials to ensure we protect this information about our Club. If you wish to have your materials returned to you we will, of course, make sure this happens.
