Dear Upfront Club members and supporters,
The UpFront Club has contributed to the town of Maleny, as a music venue and meeting place, a very successful social enterprise. But it has never been easy financially. It is fairly well known that the UpFront Club has faced some serious financial challenges over its lifetime but particularly in the last few years.
Due to increased competition and a range of factors it has been harder recently to break-even.
The UpFront Club Board has looked at a wide range of options to overcome this. As well, there has been a variety of options suggested and initiatives taken by volunteers, staff and members, like the contribution of The Friends of the Club and with the formation of SOCC. Unfortunately, all avenues researched in the last year have not turned it around.
The UpFront Club and the Maple Street Co-op boards have taken financial and legal advice. At the meeting on 2 February 2016, the boards moved and passed a number of motions.
You can find the motions here.
In effect they mean that the Maple Street Coop is no longer in a position to continue the guarantee of financial support. The UpFront Club has to cease normal trading hours to avoid the consequences of ongoing losses. Further details are noted in the Motions.
We will be reviewing the limited trading hours through February and will keep you informed.
We wish to thank members for their input, patience and support during our deliberations.
