a. Members are reminded that the green road gate MUST be kept locked AT ALL TIMES.
When this gate is locked the two inner gates may be left open. Thames Water insist
this is a mandatory requirement aimed at the prevention of both crime and fly tipping.
b. Members are also reminded that on leaving the club the doors/windows MUST be locked
and THE ALARM SYSTEM activated. If you are still not sure how to set activate (or
deactivate) the alarm system contact a committee member who will show you. (Both
the above have sometimes not been done in recent weeks)
c. Members are reminded that tea and cakes are provided on a Sunday afternoon primarily
for those people racing. Tea is NOT provided as regular Sunday afternoon social event.
The charge of 50p is made for a cup of tea and one cake, not several cakes. Recently,
sailors coming in late from racing have found everything gone.
d. Members are reminded that if they intend to remove a boat during the week it
would be a good idea to let Rodger Wheeler know beforehand. Rodger keeps an eye on
the club from across the river during the week and will ring Richard Cannon or advise
the authorities of any suspicious movements at the club.
e. And finally … Despite the TW ‘no landing’ notices along the waterfront boaters
and fisherman do still occasionally come ashore at AQSC. They have been seen wandering
along the bank where the dinghies are stored. Please make sure that valuables are
not left on your boat and if possible that your boat is locked down. (See a committee
member who will show you a relatively cheap and easy way of doing this).
