We are very excited to be re-opening on the June. Please read the attached press release. More details will be released as they are known. We cant wait to see you all!
The Clubs of Marlborough has been through challenging times in the past few months. An operational review concluded immediate changes were needed for the Club’s survival. These cannot be achieved under the Club’s present structure. In the ever-changing hospitality environment, with declining revenues and returns we need to make changes that will prepare the Club for the financial challenges ahead that all New Zealand businesses will face.
To accomplish the changes we have started with a proposal for restructuring of the Clubs management and operational functions. As we started this process, Covid-19 struck. When we reached Level 2 the government-imposed restrictions of 100 persons per building made it financially unviable for the Club to reopen. Members familiar with the Clubs financial position realised that Level 2 criteria could not sustain the Clubs costs of operation.
Our objective is that following restructuring job security will be provided. It is acknowledged that the process has been difficult for all those involved
We will notify our staff of the final proposed structure following staff consultation early next week. While there are likely to be job losses, they are necessary if the Club is to survive. At all times, the President and Committee have acted in the best interests of members and staff alike. Members will appreciate the constraints imposed upon the President and Committee due to the current employment issues involved.
We look forward to reopening our wonderful facility on Monday 22 June at 10am. Initially there will be a limited service offering whilst we develop a new menu and a new bar service with reduced prices. It is a new beginning that we hope our members and staff will embrace. We have a superb facility that we want better utilised by our members.
