IBM Hursley Retirees Club


Covid-19

It will probably come as no surprise for you to learn that the Hursley Retirees Club will not be running any trips from now until 1st July.

Given the latest Government information, particularly as it applies to those over 70, an age group into which a significant number of our members fall, the committee have decided not to continue with its planned schedule of trips/events from now until 1 July 2020.

It is, of course, likely that this pandemic will continue much later than July. The committee will be reviewing the situation in June, and we will communicate with you all at that time.

Many have booked to attend the King & I show at the Mayflower at the end of April. Information about this visit will be sent directly - in the same way that we send trip notes - to those with confirmed tickets as soon as things become clear, i.e. the show is cancelled, the Government bans large gatherings, etc. It could be several weeks before we can communicate sensibly with those that are affected, so please do not be concerned if you do not get an immediate communication.

Lastly, can we please ask you to pass this message on to those members that you know who do not receive elecronic communications from us. we are sure many are wondering why they haven't received the usual mailing of trip information.


A Right Royale Tea

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Right Royale Tea at the Best Western Chilworth Manor Hotel that we had planned to offer on January 22nd 2020. This is because some of the cast members are no longer available.


You should now have received the latest club mailing with the booking forms for the 2020 AGM and remaining 2019 plus initial 2020 trips.

Hursley Club Membership

As from January 2016, there will be an annual fee of £12 (per family) for retirees to continue their membership of the IBM Hursley Club.  This allows full use of the club facilities and the bar.

Application forms are available from the Club Office.


Emergency Mobile Phone Number: 07505-094887

We have a dedicated mobile phone that will be taken on all trips for emergency usage.

If you need to cancel your place on any future trip at the very last minute (prior to departure on the day of the trip) send a text or call 07505-094887 - giving your name and number of places.

Please also call 07505-094887 if an emergency arises during the trip, or if for any reason, you are unable to make it back to the coach pickup point for the departure time.


Please contact Beth Roberts if you need to cancel your place prior to the day of the trip.


The committee would like to remind everyone that, because IBM financially supports our activities, each trip should have THE RETIREE on the trip.  There can be no exceptions for “Limited Number” trips, unless there are spare seats available.
