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 to all the members.
We further request all members to please be considerate and understanding when the Club re-opens and kindly be patient and friendly to the staff, as this is a trying time for all. To re-open a Club the size of Kelvin Grove is not easy and the management and staff are doing everything they can to make the reopening as flawless as possible. We kindly request that you keep in mind the Club’s core values being Respect, Open & Honest Communication, Teamwork, and Accountability.
Finally, your Club needs your support and we are eagerly waiting to welcome you back to the Club.
Thank you to all Members and their guests who have supported our restaurants & sporting facilities during the past financial year and especially all the staff and management for their dedication and commitment.
We anticipate the turnover of Kelvin Grove to be down from the previous financial year. 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 emphasis has been placed on encouraging younger members and families to utilize the facilities of Kelvin Grove with the Barn becoming more “child friendly” and the upgrading of the children’s play area next to the pool.
There have been a number of staff movements in the last quarter:
Ceredwyn Nortje – appointed as new Gym Floor Supervisor
Rehan Goliath – joined as General Assistant in the Maintenance Team
Yusuf Willenberg (Carpenter), who was part of the Maintenance Team, retired on the 31 December 2019 after serving the Club for 23 years and wish him all the best in his retirement.
Tatum Campher (Purchasing admin) is expecting her second child and resigned after 6 years
Robyn Smith has resigned after working 5 years in the Pastry Kitchen
The Club continues to strive to be the Club of choice, offering many benefits to members including preferential rates when booking functions; reciprocal arrangements with more than 50 Clubs around the world, the Little Grove Kids Club and complimentary birthday treats for all club Members.
At present we receive weekly reports from our neighbour’s WPCA, regarding their development and the upgrade of the entrance to Kelvin Grove and are hopeful this will commence soon. It also appears that this will be the last year we will see the Stormers in action at Newlands and we wish them all the best for the 2020 season.
