Important announcement - Hotel for Super 60s:
We are very disappointed that our arrangement with the Stoke Rochford Hotel for the Super 60s has been cancelled. After hearing rumours we contacted the hotel and received this response:
In a very recent turn of events the hotel has taken an Exclusive use Contract, whereby the entire property is in private use until at least the beginning of 2023. Unfortunately, this means we are having to cancel all previously booked accommodation for the remainder of the year, a situation which includes your booking noted in your previous email. Any deposits paid will be refunded and any guests who opted to pay online through a third-party agent i.e., Expedia etc will have their funds returned to them. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to welcoming guests once more in the new year.

Press reports indicate that they have an exclusive contract with the Government to accommodate Afghani refugees. We appreciate how frustrating this is for our members (and us!) who made the booking in good faith. And also spare a thought for the three couples who have had their weddings cancelled. But there is nothing we can do about this - and I think we can all have sympathies with the plight of refugees at this time.
So, the upshot of this is that we've lost our hotel and the venue for our planned Social on Saturday evening. But the show (or at least the tournament) will go on.
This is a call to do what the VETTS do best and help each other out - can we use our Facebook groups to share any information people have about room availability, or hotels, or offers to share etc.
