"Dear all at Organfax. It was 4 years ago that we closed and reformed the club following a generous donation from a well wisher. At next months concert we will celebrate the extra 4 years we managed to salvage and enjoy. To all loyal members and visitors it is with deep regret that we have to inform you as the 2014 season is coming to an end, we have had to make the decision to close down the Eden Park Music Club. We have lost many reliable members in the last year due to varied reasons and the prospect for 2015 is an extremely low membership. We have both enjoyed managing the club over the years, despite some of the challenges and financially we have been successful mainly due to the support we have had from so many members for which we are truly grateful. We have tried to increase the membership but each year it is getting more difficult to get ‘bums on seats’ .We are sorry to have to make this decision but find we have very little alternative. We thank you all for your support and hope like us, you have enjoyed the time we have had together over the years. We look forward to keeping in touch with you all by supporting local music clubs such as Orpington and Bexley. Our last concert will be Monday Dec 1st with Chris Powell and we hope to make it an evening to remember and so please bring as many guests as you can! Farewell for now and all best wishes Bert & Eva"
What is the state of our clubs, are they on the brink of disaster or is there hope? Just what can be done? See our OrganFax forum and have your say!
