Membership for the 2016/17 season

This season has proved to be a turning point for the Club. Our current membership numbers and the increasing costs of hiring the Cramphorn Theatre – £834, at least, now added for VAT charges thanks to the HMRC ruling – coupled with the license fees for showing the films, means that our subscription of £50 will not meet the costs of running the programme for the coming season. The Club cannot run into debt! To address this, we have calculated that we can afford to show 16 films if the subscription for members is £60 and the membership stays at 121, which it has been this season. And there’s the rub! We do need at least 121 members, again, to make the Club viable for another season. Therefore, so that we might have a clearer picture as to where we are going, it would be a great help to those of us who organise the programme if you could renew your membership as soon as possible or, alternatively, let us know as soon as you can if you are NOT going to join again. More than 121 members would be great, and might result in a small, healthy surplus. The more members, the more films we can show. We have been optimistic, would love to take the Club to even a 30th year (!!) but depend on current members joining again, bringing guests along (the guest ticket remains at £6) and bringing in some new members: friends, family and neighbours! Spread the word!
