Update 14th Jan 2018

The committee would like to thank members and visitors to the Welfare for there support throughout 2017.

There as been lots of work done top try to improve the building, having said this, the work program that still needs to be done is massive.

The Committee would also like to thank the volunteer members that as turned out to help.!

We would also like to thank all those how have worked on the projects, contractors included, as we feel there as been little to no impact on the business activity.

I have left the 2017 AGM report on for members to look at.

To close this section

We also would like to thank our section at the welfare and a special mention to the Quarrydale FC. The site and pitches have not looked so good for many, many years.

Well done to you all.




There was only three members attended the 2017 AGM

it is the assumption of the Committee that this means that everyone is happy with what as taken place throughout 2016/7

Two issues  were discussed

  • Smoking shelter and smoke

The Committee will make an effort to repair the smoking shelter, also signs will be put up around the doors asking members and visitor not to smoke inside or on the steps of the building as this will bring them in breach of the 2010 smoking regulation and could lead top them getting a fine.

  • Membership cost

It was agreed that the Committee look at the issue of membership cost and produce a report for consideration.

  1. That all members pay for membership
  2. That visitor control and payments be brought up to date as there as been no adjustment for some years.
  3. That members should have identifiable benefit from being a member.

We will always strive to be on top of any possibility that may cause harm or just need repair. We would encourage everyone to be our additional eyes and ears in the club and report anything that you may believe could course harm to member or guest’s.If yo do feel you wish to report some thing, then we would be obliged if you would in the first instance advice the bar staff on duty , who will record it and email it to the team involved in getting repairs etc. As quick as possible. Or you could go to the contacts page on the clubs web site www.bentinckmw.com and go to the contacts page.

On that note there appears to be a certain belief that John Taylor (trustee) is the clubs handyman.? Could I clarify that John’s role is to arrange to have repairs or improvements made by contacting professional tradesmen. When you do see John making repairs or improvement’s in the club it is purely voluntary on his behalf.
