CLUB MACLEAY ALL SET FOR 7 DAYS CHRISTMAS TRADING AND FINALISING MAJOR CLUB EXTENSIONS Club Macleay is heading into the busiest time of the year, with 7 days trading and some fun Christmas activities. “We will be going ahead flat out over the Christmas New Year period,” says Club Manager Julie Brooks. One of the highlights will be Club Macleay Members’ Christmas Party on Tuesday December 11 and will involve a two-course traditional Christmas dinner and Dessert at $25 per person. The Christmas Party is open to all Club Macleay members and their families, including children. There will be entertainment by Goldie and the Bear and prawns will be provided by Club Macleay. Then there will be New Year’s Eve. The club has some great entertainment lined up and it will definitely be the place to be to herald in the New Year of 2022. There is more good news on the major renovations coming to the club and the $267,022 Federal Government grant via the Building Better Regions fund. There is much paperwork still to be done regarding the grant, but this work is well underway. Club President Barry Reid says the process may be stalled a little due to the Christmas holiday season and government holidays, but he expects work on the new entrance to the club and user-friendly and disability-level entry, will be ready to be constructed by mid 2022. The work will represent the ‘first stage’ in an overall club revampment that will entail three distinct stages. This first stage will also have perhaps the biggest impact because it will give the entrance and facade to Club Macleay and entirely new look. Julie Brooks says: “The other stages of the club expansion is the second stage which will see a lift added to the deck area which will allow for members who may have difficulty walking or require wheelchair use, to be able to access the synthetic bowls green.” The third and final stage will be the 10 metre deck extension across the front of the club, overlooking the brilliant club views of Moreton Bay towards the mainland. Further grants will be applied for to see much of the work carried out.
