De­fend­ing the Tin Shed

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

WITH re­gards to Stephen Lee’s let­ter in last week’s Gazette, I find it hard to be­lieve that Stephen can­not see that the Com­bined Club has moved for­ward in leaps and bounds since the elec­tion of the cur­rent com­mit­tee.

I see a well man­aged busi­ness main­tain­ing a healthy cash flow and em­ploy­ing on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, full and part time staff, who now have some sense of se­cu­rity, in retaining their jobs.

It has come to my at­ten­tion that a ’few’ peo­ple are whinge­ing and dis­sat­is­fied about the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the very things they sought to be done at the last AGM.

Firstly to bring un­der con­trol a debt level that was out of con­trol 18 months ago and to main­tain a for­ward man­age­ment plan to give the club the ex­pec­ta­tion of a bright fu­ture.

It has also come to my at­ten­tion that these few peo­ple re­gard the club man­age­ment as not be­ing trans­par­ent re­gard­ing fi­nan­cial man­age­ment. I am just an or­di­nary mem­ber and I have cer­tainly had no prob­lem in ac­cess­ing the in­for­ma­tion that I wanted re­gard­ing the club’s fi­nances and sta­tus of the club’s ac­tiv­i­ties.
