Club Frontage Refurbishment

News Posted on Tue, May 28, 2019 18:31:13

Over the coming weeks, it will become apparent that the Albany club are erecting scaffolding at the front of the property at 10 Earlsdon Street.

Due to the age of the building, it has become apparent to the committee that some of masonry on the front of the club is starting to show signs of wear that will need addressing before they become an issue and potential hazard. As such, the club in accordance with its responsibilities to its members, club users and the local residents of the Earlsdon area, we are forging forward with the necessary repair works.

The club fully realise the concerns people may have around the nature of works, and therefore wishes to reassure all those interested that this work is purely to restore the frontage to its former glory and ensure that we don’t have any lose masonry which could eventually become unsightly and a potential future Health & Safety issue.

In addition to the above, we might just give the frontage a coat of paint or two to preserve the club’s local heritage status and reputation.

Kind Regards

The Albany Social Committee

Membership Renewal

Membership Posted on Fri, January 06, 2017 13:09:57

Thanks for the newsletter, Gill.

As you know, several members have long been unhappy and frustrated with the antique system of renewing membership by having to form long queues outside the front office between set times convenient to the club’s officers but not necessarily to members themselves.

Surely, the club needs to enter the 20th, never mind the 21st century, by arranging membership renewals online. It does not take a genius to set up a system which allows members to renew at a time of their convenience at their own PCs , tablets or phones. All they need to do is set up a password-protected account which allows a direct bank transfer from their account into yours. The membership is then confirmed electronically and stored in the system without the need for the hard copy booklet signed in pen and ink.

This may not suit everybody in the short term so the present manual system may need to be extended alongside the new electronic one. I also realise it is too late to introduce for this year so that gives ample time for a new system to be in place for 2018.

Kind regards,

Chris Fry
