ULLEY SC ON TV 23 April 2014

Ulley was on TV on Wednesday evening, about halfway through the Look North programme that started on BBC1 at 18:30.  Catch it on iPlayer!


£50,000 Grant from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund!

More momentous news for Ulley Sailing Club:  We have been awarded a grant of £50,000 from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund!
 
The grant will be used to modify and refurbish the interior of the whole of the clubhouse and visitor centre.  This work will provide significantly improved facilities (a) for Ulley Sailing Club and Wickersley's Activity Centre, (b) for Friends of Ulley Country Park and (c) for people who hire the multi-purpose room.
 
For both Ulley Sailing Club and Wickersley School’s Activity Centre

1)  The provision of a dedicated disabled changing room. (We are currently speaking to the RYA with a view to Ulley SC becoming a Sailability Centre to help people with disabilities to enjoy the sport of sailing.)  The disabled changing room will also double as an instructor changing room so will be very useful for Wickersley School’s Activity Centre. 

2)  There will also be some increase in the usable space in the Ladies and Gents Changing Rooms. 

For Ulley Sailing Club only:
 
3) Extra space in the clubroom to provide a “dry area”.
 
4)  A sorely needed storage room for the increasing documentation needed for our operations as a RYA Recognised Training Centre and for general Club documentation and small equipment.
 
For Friends of Ulley Country Park:
 
5)  An extension to their kitchen, providing a large serving hatch for the sale of soup and hot drinks on Cafe Days.  This will be far more convenient than the current arrangement because they will no longer need to transport hot liquids from the kitchen to the selling table.
 
6)  An increase in the space available for their Cafe Day operations, achieved by removing the wall between the large multi-purpose room and the front office and replacing it with a fold-away wall.  This will also mean that their non-food sales are not hidden away in the entrance, but are on view to all customers at all times so greater sales should result.
 
For People who hire the multi-purpose room:
 
The larger kitchen and the serving hatch, combined with the flexibility of changing the size of the room by means of the fold-away wall, will make the room suitable for a much greater range of activities – family parties, socials, etc – and should therefore increase the number of bookings, thus also providing additional revenue for RMBC.
 
EVERYBODY GAINS !!!

Our Commodore says:

We are all thrilled that Ulley Sailing Club has been selected as a finalist for the RYA Club of the Year 2014 award. The winner will be announced at the Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace on 1st March.  Many of our members will be there to cheer us on.

The club has worked unstintingly to rebuild itself since the disastrous flooding in 2007, renewing equipment, facilities and club boats and attracting many new members through Open Day events and sailing taster sessions.

Last year we were awarded RYA Recognised Training Centre status – a magnificent achievement.

Being selected as a finalist for the Club of the Year award is the icing on the cake for us.

Many thanks to our management committee and to the many other members who have worked so hard in bringing the club to its proud position today.

David Holt

Commodore
