November Newsletter

This year has flown by we are already in November and soon the mad rush around Christmas will be in full swing. I hope that everyone is not too busy trying to wrap up all those projects that were started but not yet completed and that you are all finding the time to be the real you amidst the rush.

As usual I would like to welcome all our new clients to the Priscilla’s fold and also thank all our existing clients for your ongoing support. It is our pleasure and our privilege to serve such an amazing group of people. It is especially nice to meet you all face to face from time to time and get to know you all a little bit better each time.

As I am sure you all know we had a lovely Saturday night Cocktail Party in late October. If you missed it, you can read all about it here.
We are planning a second Saturday night event, once again in conjunction with Mantopia on 17 December. More about that in later messages.
We are also arranging a midweek outing to Trouble on a Wednesday night in November. Wednesday nights are Trouble’s karaoke nights. Unfortunately I will not be able to sing -the karaoke machine manufacturers have all taken out restraining orders against me, but I will certainly be joining you for all the fun. We will be sending out more details in a few days time for those who are interested.
We are also looking at the possibility of organising a block booking to go and see the stage production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert which is coming to Johannesburg in April 2017.
We would as always love to hear from you what specific outings and socials may interest you.

On a related note, please note that we have had to start charging a small administration fee for our outings. Whilst it is wonderful to meet you all and spend time with you, the organisation takes quite a lot of effort and we need to recover some of our expenses. We will therefore be charging a fee per outing. Each outing’s fee will be advised on an ad hoc basis. This fee will be in addition to any cover charges, ticket costs etc that maybe charged by the venue.

We have started purchasing the tiles, some of the fittings and have approved the quote for work to commence on our permanent venue. We should start work on 19 December and we hope to be up and running very early in 2017.

We have had a marked increase in demand for storage in recent months. We have therefore had to increase our monthly storage/rental fee. With effect from 1 January 2017 rental fess will be increasing from R250 per month to R350 per month. Anyone who is on a long term package will only experience the price increase from the time that they renew their rental.

We have decided to start offering membership packages in addition to the ad hoc services we offer. These packages offer considerable value to you and allow you to budget more easily than in the past. We will be launching them officially in 2017 as soon as the venue becomes available, but we are pleased to offer all existing contacts an ‘early bird’ special. If you sign up and pay in advance for a package before 31 January 2017 you will get your first month’s membership free. Membership can be paid for in advance on a monthly, semi-annual or annual basis. Membership is only valid as long as you are a paid up member. Semi-annual and annual memberships enjoy discounted rates, contact us for a quote if you want to pay on this basis.

All memberships include up to three uses of our permanent facility per month (this will only be redeemable as and when the venue becomes available). Please note that the use of the facility needs to be booked and it is available on a first come first served basis. We cannot guarantee availability and you can only book the facility a maximum of six weeks in advance. Unused bookings of the facility will incur a penalty of R250 per incident. This is done to prevent people from abusing the system and block booking the facility when they have no intention of using it.

Notes
The shopping service works as follows: you tell us what you want to buy, your size requirements, budget and any other preferences. We then purchase these on your behalf and deliver them to you. You pay for the items at cost. Each service is rendered for a maximum of ten items per client per service. These services differ to our ‘shopping experience‘, which is when we take you shopping with us on an accompanied outing. The shopping experience is thus different and does not form part of your membership benefits at this time.
Should you have an existing rental agreement in place and want to supplement this with a membership package, please contact us so that we can assist you. We will ensure that you do not lose any value.
Unused benefits do not ‘roll over’ into subsequent periods, nor do they accumulate in any way.
Benefits are not transferable.

We look forward to seeing you all at the functions that are coming up. As always please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything. we are here to help.
