Hi to all Senior Blades December 2021/January 2022



Due to increased costs, Compass have informed us that the cost of lunch at our monthly meetings in the Platinum Suite will rise from £16.50 to £17.00 from January 2022.

Also from January 2022 the committee have decided to introduce a £10.00 charge for anybody who has booked a lunch then subsequently does not attend. Since August 2021 the committee has been able to absorb these costs but to continue to hold lunches and provide entertainment the introduction of this charge is necessary.

A reminder that a lunch booking has to be made seven days prior to the lunch either by email ( info@seniorblades.com ) or phone (01335 664560) If you make a booking and subsequently have to cancel before the seven day booking deadline, then you will not be required to pay this £10.00 cancellation charge.

In the new year we will have two machines to take the money for our lunches and hopefully this will reduce the queues. Members may also pay direct ( by obtaining our bank details from Stephen Gibbons ) in advance or by cheque on the day Please remember to book  seven days in advance for our lunch on the 11th January. Deadline 4 January.


At our lunches we have a number of spaces reserved for members. These are marked with cones. Just move a cone, if you wish to use a space near to the Platinum Suite. These are used on a first come first park basis.
