Bristol Big'Uns
Welcome to our forums. The Bristol Big'Uns are a group of people who enjoy fantasy, science fiction and historical wargames. We tend to play mostly table-top wargames but you will sometimes see CCGs, CMGs, RPGs or board games. If this sounds like a hobby you currently enjoy then why not come along. The club is based at Iron Acton, between Bristol and Yate, in the recently refurbished Parish Hall and is held Sunday evenings from 6 pm until 10 pm. There are tables and chairs available plus various sized scenic mats and terrain for table-top wargames. Please bring with you any drinks or snacks that you require.

Parish Hall Hire Cost Increase.

Below is a message sent to Steve about an increase in the hire cost for the hall. The increase will mean we need to have 10 people playing every week to break even at our current subs rate (£3.00). Steve and I will assess the financial situation and see if the subs need to rise to make the club sustainable. We appreciate that everyone is feeling the pinch at the moment and are happy to explore options.

"At the Parish Hall Management Committee meeting last Wednesday the decision was made to increase our Hire Charges.  This is our first increase since February 2017. With the cost of electricity and oil rising dramatically we have no other choice if we are to continue to maintain the Hall to its present standard.Your hiring fee will increase from £26 per evening to £30 per evening on 1st November 2022.Please would you be as economic as possible and make sure you do not leave lights and other electrical goods running when you vacate the Hall.Thank you for your cooperation and continuing support of the Parish Hall."

Re: Parish Hall Hire Cost Increase.

After due consideration the club committee has decided that, starting with the first meeting in November 2022, weekly subs will rise to £4.00 per person.

Re: Parish Hall Hire Cost Increase.

The "about" info needs to reflect the revised meeting cost.
