We discussed this last week at the Poker night and the general consensus was that it would be really good to have some Witton/football memorabilia in the club. Having a bigger club than most teams probably makes it slightly harder to decorate, so it maybe an idea to put the memorabilia in one corner or one part of the club.
It does need something I've never been a fan of the redecoration and was puzzled why we covered all the brickwork and gave it the 'works canteen' look, memorabilia would get my vote (although maybe costly) but maybe a large club emblem at the back of the stage?
The hardest part about moving on is learning not to look back!!
I think some memorabilia would be nice, so long as it is not over the top. Maybe on just one wall, say the wall between the social club and the vice presidents lounge. We can't go too much over the top, as we have to remember that we market the social club for non-footballing events. (e.g. weddings and parties etc)
I do agree that the room at the moment seems to be very bland, and it does need some character adding to it. I personally think the raised areas that we used to have, with U shaped bench seating areas gave the club much more character.
If you want to attract more people for none-football based events then I think the toilets near then main entrance really need looking at. At the moment the walls are mouldy, which is not going to encourage people to re-book the place for social events.
I don't think a flag would work other than for football fans. I think the money would be better spent on a more accommodating/co-ordinating colour scheme.
Agree Emma, decorating is priority and could be done tastefully ( leave that to the ladies ) in Witton colours as u say. Have a big flag by all means but one that can put up for the right occasions. Plenty of memorabilia in the lounge is there not - just needs sorting and adding to.
Thank you for all your comments. Ive now received some items for the social club memorial wall, with more promised. I think the idea of a large Witton Badge is a no no , but it was just a thought.
Michelle & I are planning on a few alterations within in the club, but will have to save hard for new chairs & tables, I might try and make some?????? I think not. (ha ha)
We are trying to "Grooy Up" The social.
