Membership at SYC is open to everybody, with competitive subscriptions for those intending to make the most of our on-the-water activities and great social events, not to mention the bar and restaurant; you could become a member for as little at £13.41 per month.
Members will be sorry not to see the cheerful features of Deana around the bar these days. After 28 years service to the club she has retired to look after a member of the family.
Neil Fraser Betts writes: “Deana started work at SYC some 28 years ago. She has mainly worked Mondays and Tuesdays as well as club functions. When we first started the club quiz 20 years ago Deana would purchase the nibbles and plate them for us purely for the cost of the food only.
There is a collection box in the office in aid of the Chestnut Tree House, details of which are available here: http://www.chestnut-tree-house.org.uk. As you can see this is a very worthy charity which does some wonderful work with the children. Please bring your (washed) plastic milk bottle tops to the office to help this cause.
