Chief Executive Officer’s Message

Simon Cook Warm BG 2016-007 FINAL

Welcome to the winter edition of Wests World.

Further to the Magpie Sports Awards presentation, as mentioned in the Chairman’s Report, the Community Spirit Awards will be held on Tuesday, 27th August. This event is comprised of three components: the Category 1 ClubGRANTS presentation which benefits local organisations and their projects; the Community Citizenship Awards, recognising and rewarding students and their schools for playing active roles in creating a more caring and vibrant community and finally, the Community Art Competition, encouraging young talent from both local primary and secondary schools. The Reception area will be host to a ‘pop up’ gallery displaying the outstanding works submitted from the students – this is your opportunity to vote on your favourite piece in the “People’s Choice” Award category.

Commencing Monday, 3rd June is our new menu in The Garden, which is guaranteed to warm you this winter. In July we will be hosting our first Degustation Dinner, ‘A Tour Through South Australia – Bigger than the Barossa’, a 5 course decadent dinner matched with our great range of South Australian wines. Also in August, we launch the “Atrium High Tea”. If you have a cause for celebration, whether it be a Hen’s Party, Baby Shower, a group get-together or a delightful trip out with a friend, our High Tea in the Atrium must be a priority.

I’d like to take this opportunity in wishing the best of luck to the Wests Tigers and Wests Magpies in their respective teams for the season.

I hope you enjoy the winter edition of Wests World and look forward to seeing you in the Club.
