There is so much going on at the Club, that it's hard to know where to start.
The Board of Directors of the UpFront Club is thrilled to announce that our Landlord, Terra Australis, under the direction of Ian McDonald and Brian Day, has given the Upfront Club a very generous budget for much needed renovations to the Club.
A detailed proposal, including a budget and preliminary drawings was presented to Ian and Brian and they have generously agreed to fund this project.
The scope of works includes:
• Extend the existing floor area by 5%. This is the maximum allowed under the Council regulations for minor works.
• Improvements to the kitchen.
• Fit a security gate to the entrance of the alleyway on the east side of the UFC so art works can be displayed on the wall of this area.
• Relocate the storage area closer to the building thus freeing up space in the backyard.
• Landscape the backyard to make it more user-friendly.
• Extend the firewall between the Newsagent and the UFC to meet Council regulations.
The existing green shed storage area at the back of the UFC will no longer be needed. We are hoping that a member will be able to use this structure in return for removing it.
If you are interested in this, please contact John Vasta at the Upfront Club.
Engineer’s plans are being prepared now to submit to Council.
We look forward to showing you all the approved plans in the near future.
The Board of Directors’ extends our gratitude to Ian and Brian for their continued support of the Upfront Club.
Makeover - inside and out!
First it was the garden party - where a great group of people weeded and planted and partied out the back of the Club:
Then the Painting Days -
Over two and a bit days, a large and dedicated team cleaned, scraped, sanded and painted the Club... first, the dining room had to be emptied out...
Then the painting began!
Inside and out...
You'll find a photo album of the day here.
Thank you all who took part!
Looking for New Directors
Preparations have started for the next AGM in October when we will need to find a few new Directors. If you have skills or interest in finance, hospitality, governance, or cooperatives and would like to work in a consensus-based, team environment, please contact the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or identify yourself to one of our Directors at Friday’s Board Listening Table. See here for the schedule for the Board Listening Table as they are sometimes in the mornings and sometimes in the afternoons. If you're interested, but want to know more about what Directors do, look out for our Directors Information meeting later this year.
