Rules And Regulations
Making A Complaint - The Process to Follow:
Firstly, please do not approach our President, Chairman or individual members of the committee to make a complaint as one person can not deal with any complaints that may arise without bringing to the attention of the whole committee.
This must be done in writing.
If you are not entirely happy with any part of our club or your membership, please put your concerns in writing, adding your name and your membership number and post in the suggestion box provided For The Attention Of The Committee.
Please be assured the box is emptied regularly and your complaint will be dealt with in a timely manner. Alternatively, you can email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Using either of these options is the only way to bring something to our attention so that your complaint or concern can be dealt with.
Thank you. The Committee.
