Cleeve.Cloud – Update

Hi Everyone,

Following a conversation with TBC this morning, it has become clear that there are a number of commercial interests working on bids to hold a Lease on Cleeve Hill Golf Couse and the Clubhouse building after the current Lease ends on 31st March 2021.

With this in mind, I do not believe that it would be right to pursue a community-driven bid at the present time.

As we face what might become a very severe economic downturn in the months and possibly years ahead, it would be unfair and potentially irresponsible to seek funding from you all and to use up volunteer time and donated or sponsored resources to put together a bid like this, if there are people already happy to dig into their own pockets to keep the facility open, – even if it turns out to be run and operated in a very similar form to now.

It is a great shame that there are clearly a number of interests already working on or closely supporting bids, whilst deliberately misleading others to believe that they are not committed to any existing plan.

I nonetheless hope a bid will come through that proves to be both credible to the Council and ‘doable’ as far as those pursuing it are concerned.

It would be a great loss for the wider community if the Course should close simply because certain groups have focused all their efforts on getting the outcome they want for themselves rather than being open to working with others to create a solution that would be inclusive and beneficial to all.

Best wishes,

Adam
