Should the General Management Committee at any time be of the opinion that in the interests of the Club, they shall by letter, invite any member to withdraw from the Club within a time specified in such letter, and in default of such withdrawal, submit the question of his expulsion to a Special General Meeting to be held within 4 weeks after the date of such letter.

At such meeting, the member whose expulsion is under consideration shall be allowed to offer an explanation of their conduct, verbally or in writing, and if two-thirds of the members present at such meeting shall vote for his expulsion, he shall thereupon cease to be a member of the club.

The voting of any such Special General Meeting shall be by ballot.

It shall be in the power of the Management Committee to exclude such member from the Club Pavilion and Green until such Special General Meeting shall be held.

10 - Ground Fund

Ground fund is the term used for the assets of the club should it cease to operate and the subsequent distribution of those assets to the membership by way of shares held.

No member can hold more than 10 shares.

The number of shares held by a member is based on the number of relevant paid memberships that they have paid over the last 10 years.

For each year of relevant paid up membership a member will receive 1 share.

A share obtained in the current financial year will still have value to the member until the 11th year when it ceases to exist.

Shares are not transferable.

If a share holder dies their shares cease to exist.

When a full playing member decides to stop playing for the club the General management committee will decide if the member can stay on as a non playing member to maintain or increase the shares they hold or become an Honorary member.

If they are not permitted to stay on as a non playing member the shares they accrued whilst a playing member will continue to be theirs until they drop off on the 10 year rule or they die.

I the event the club folds the clubs assets will be divided by the total number of shares held by its members to determine the share value and then paid out to the members dependant on how many shares they own.

The record of shares held over the last 10 years will be maintained by the secretary and treasurer and made available at any time at the request of any member.
