Chairman's Column Dear Fellow Members Most South Africans believed President Cyril Ramaphosa`s March 26th announcement that the country would go into lockdown for three weeks was a very temporary interruption that would not become an unprecedented four and a half month shutdown, a process and timeframe considered crucial to the containment and management of the COVID-19 pandemic that has however resulted in many negative outcomes. There are over 600 000 confirmed cases in the country, just over 100 000 of those in the Western Cape and whilst the recovery rate has been good and the

Dear Members, Kelvin Grove Club has been affected negatively by the lockdown, as with all other institutions in the hospitality industry. Whilst we were excited to inform you of the re-opening of the eat-in/sit-down restaurants at the Club, as announced by the President on Wednesday 17 June 2020, we unfortunately expected to hear the date and rules for opening soon after the President's speech. Sadly the government has still not announced the date and rules. We apologize for being too proactive in our approach. As soon as we receive confirmation of the date and rules for re-opening, we will communicate

Contributing factors are the economy that seemingly sank into technical recession in the fourth quarter of last year as well as the unprecedented rolling blackouts by Eskom. On a positive note, the number of resignations by Members over the last 2 years has declined. Over the past year a greater
