A message from your Club President

On November 26th, the Government placed Hampshire in Tier 2. This will start on Wednesday 2nd December when the National Lockdown ends.

Having considered all the Tier 2 rules, the committee and myself have decided that we are unable to open the club.
There are two key Tier 2 rules that has informed our decision:
> the Club could only open if it operated as a Restaurant or serve alcohol with a substantial meal.
> members would not be allowed to socialise indoors with anyone outside of their household or support bubble.
Therefore, Tier 2 rules takes away the main function of the club being the ability to mix with friends, chat and share opinions over a drink.

With the unpredictable nature of this Pandemic and the Government's response, I cannot tell the members what will happen next. The committee and myself will monitor developments so that we can open the club as soon as it is both safe and economically viable to do so. I really do hope that we will be able to have some sort of Club Christmas but it must be safe to do so.

In the meantime we are taking the opportunity to do some small improvements within the club and I thank in particular Glenn Butcher and Davey Moore who are both doing a sterling amount of volunteer work on behalf of the club.

As soon as I have anything more to report I will be in touch.

Mark W Treacy
Club President

Your Lovely Comments

The Club created a special page for you to comment on what the club means to you. Here are your lovely comments:

 "Happy Birthday to the best club around. Joined the club when I moved to the area and enjoy the live music on Saturday evenings and the football on the big screen. A very friendly club and great bar staff. Here's to the next 100." Stuart Dawson

 "The club has a relaxing surrounding and a very diverse membership, which shows the club in high esteem. I have personally enjoyed being on the committee for 15 years and helped organise many sporting events, the main one being with the appearance of Phil the Power Tayor. I remember Phil describing the club as playing in 'Buckingham Palace' high praise indeed. Also, the entertainment is very diverse and suits all the desires of the members. I have many good memories but the members do make the club what it is." David Cocks

 "David and I go on Thursdays to meet with other Insync members, we also go to the main club room. The Central club is very generous having Insync in the club. We've really missed going there, not only on Thursdays. The people we know in the main club are great, welcoming and very friendly. It will be so good to get back, hopefully not too far away." Judy Smyth

 "Simply thanks for all the good times and simply always being there. Thanks again" Michael Laird

 "I love Saturday night's with some great bands and a chance to get up and dance." Jennifer Newth

 "Looking forward to a decent band for a Saturday night, including Somethin' Else and The Rock N Sax Show." Malcolm Pickup

 "It is the best social club in Chandlers Ford with a relaxing, friendly atmosphere with local bands and a great range of lager beers and ales. Here's to the next 100 years!" Mark Hayes

 "Good place to watch football which justifies the higher bar prices than other local establishments and a picturesque beer garden out the back for those who want to drink a non alchaholic beverage. The club is great." Ash Churchill

 "Always feel at home there!" Pam French

 "Been a member since 1967. Congrats to the club on its 100 years. Andy and the Tuesday evening crowd are a great bunch of people to spend some time with before I get me curry. Hughie will be sadly missed." Chris French
