Fee Information Update: Sept 2014
Further to the previous notice informing parents of the impending increases to the monthly swim fees, as a committee we wish to provide further information which we hope will give further understanding as to how and why this decision was made:
For the last 2 years we have absorbed the DCC increased pool hire fees within the existing month fees, however this is no longer sustainable and unless we take the collective responsibility of ensuring the income of the club at least matches the expenditure of the club, CLS swimming club will cease to be a viable concern. So, whilst we understand the concerns of parents in these times of austerity, we do hope you will understand why these increases need to be carried out.
Within the process of reviewing the fee structure we have also looked at realigning the lane fees and have undertaken bench marking with a number of local clubs. The outcome from this showed that CLS Swimming Club provides some of the best value for money in the area.
Further to this notice, each parent will be receiving an individual communication from the club treasurer as to the new monthly fee that will be effective as from 1st November. Can you please ensure you standing order is amended to reflect this increased amount, in line with when the rates become effective.
