Raglan Club Newsletter – December 2020

On behalf of myself and the committee, we trust you had a lovely Christmas. Here is a quick update on what is happening at the club, especially over the coming weeks.

Christmas Community Charity Lunch

What a fantastic event with over 200 people coming to the Club to enjoy Christmas lunch. Rabbitt Catering did a wonderful job feeding everyone. It was a pleasure to host this important community event.

Annie Crummer Concert

Don’t miss out on your Annie Crummer tickets, they are selling well. Tickets available from the bar and limited door sales on the day – $35 per person. The restaurant will be open throughout the night, with a limited menu after 9pm.

Courtesy Van

New Courtesy Van schedule – now available 5 days a week Wednesday – Sunday from 4pm. Call the club to book and please remember this is a gold coin donation service, payable at the bar or on the day to the van driver.

Fleetwood Mac Dreams Concert

Fleetwood Mac Dreams Concert – Sunday 31st January – tickets now on sale at the Club $35 pp

The restaurant will be open throughout the night, with a limited menu after 9pm.

Sail Shades, Garden Bar and Playground area

The garden area at the club is looking lovely and is a perfect place to come and enjoy some family time this summer. The playground area is a secure space for children to play with new sail shades recently installed for sun protection. Bring the family down and enjoy the facilities.

Bow Street Deck

With summer now here, come and enjoy the Bow Street Deck. This is a lovely outside area to share a few drinks and a meal with your friends. We have some exciting plans for this deck in the New Year.

Left hand Break Restaurant

Just a reminder that the kitchen is open from 6pm on Wednesday to Saturday.

Private Events & Functions

If you have a special occasion coming up and you would like to use the Raglan Club or the Bowling Club to host your function, please give Trudi a call to discuss your options. The Garden Bar area is a perfect spot to have a special gathering, or you can hire the Bowling Club for a nominal fee and party the night away.

The Bowling Club is ideal for birthdays, family reunions, special anniversaries, weddings, engagement parties, club hobbies etc

Raglan One Base Fishing Competition – 10 – 13th March 2021

Advance notice to all keen fishermen/women – please mark this date in your diary. The One Base fishing competition is back for another year.

Club nights

Raffles and Club Draws will continue as normal on a Wednesday and Friday night, including New Year’s Eve Day.


Memberships expire on the 31 August every year, please ensure you have a current membership as you may be asked to show your card over the next few weeks. Annual membership is $30 and $50 per couple. If you have guests from out of town we also offer a $5 seasonal membership which is valid for 3 months.

We would love to see you down here at the club enjoying our friendly hospitality.

Staff changes

Sadly, we say goodbye to Ellen who is pursuing a new opportunity. We are also farewelling Jo in January.

I am thrilled to announce that Roimata and Mandy have taken on permanent positions, with Mandy becoming our regular van driver and Jenni will continue to work 3 shifts a week. Yvonne is our new casual employee filling in when needed. This is a fairly new team so please show your support and patience whilst we all get up to speed and fully trained. Thank you 😊

Club Carpark

Please note that our carpark is only for club members whilst you are at the club as well as NZMCA members. Please use the back entrance (off Wallis Street) where possible as there will be a lot of foot traffic on Bow Street over the summer, for safety reasons this will be important especially with the pop up stalls out in the front generating pedestrians.

Managers note:

Thank you for making me feel so welcome at the club, it’s been lovely to meet so many of you over the last couple of months.

I would like to say a big Thank YOU to all the people who help make the Raglan Club a lovely place for locals and guests to enjoy, especially the hard-working committee who tirelessly give up their time, our dedicated team as well as many other volunteers who help throughout the year. Without these people the Club wouldn’t function.

Wishing all our club members a happy and prosperous year ahead.

Enjoy your summer holidays, say safe, look after one another and see you down here at the club over the coming weeks. We have lots of exciting plans for the club in 2021.

If you have any questions, please give me a call for a friendly chat.

Happy New Year!!

Trudi – Club Manager
