Catering

 

Dear Member

 

We are sorry to inform you that ABL Catering have decided to end their franchise arrangement with Babbacombe & St Marychurch Conservative Club. They gave notice on the evening of  Sunday 13 of September 2021, to leave with immediate effect.

 

We will endeavour to provide alternative catering arrangements as soon as possible, but due to the lack of notice this could take some time.

 

We wish to thank Andy and his team for their service, over what has been a very difficult period and wish them all the best for the future.

 

 

Stay safe

 

The Committee.

Dear Members

 

We are pleased to be planning the reopening of the club at last!  We are hoping to be open for business on the 17th of May and look forward to welcoming our members.

 

Although we tried our best to offer an outdoor service (which would have allowed us to open a little sooner) we cannot rely on the Great British weather to deliver sunshine without all the showers in April.

 

To be able to join us from May 17th onwards you will need to make sure that you have paid your membership fees for 2021. There are a number of ways you can do this, these are listed here.  We would like to thank those of you who have already done so.

 

The opening hours from 17/05/2021 until the 20/06/2021 inclusive are;

 

Monday        11:30 to 20:00

Tuesday       11:30 to 20:00

Wednesday 11:30 to 20:00 ( 23:00 on a quiz /social night) Fortnightly starting 19/05/2021

Thursday     11:30 to 20:00 

Friday          11:30 to 23:00

Saturday     11:30 to 23:00

Sunday        11:30 to 20:00 ( 22:00 on a bingo night) Fortnightly starting 23/05/2021
