As members will be aware no price increases have been levied on bar prices since November 2018. since then there have been 2 price increases from the brewery and 2 large increases in the National Minimum Wage that we are required by law to make. The club has absorbed these increases to the extent that the Gross Profit (the part of income used to pay bills / wages / repairs etc without dipping into reserves)
proved insufficient to meet all of these payments.
At last nights committee meeting it was therefore agreed that the price increase of 6.9% calculated before Covid 19 and due to be implemented after the March Elections in April 2020 but unable to be done will now be applied to all bar drinks prices with immediate effect.
All cleaning items have also increased in price but we are hoping that they will settle back to pre March prices.
No one likes to increase prices – especially when we really need your support but it is an economic necessity.
