CEO REPORT – MJJ 2016
Revesby Village Centre 1st Birthday Fair
I’m pleased to report that our Revesby Village Centre 1st Birthday Fair was a huge success. Held on Saturday 27 February thousands of local residents joined in the celebrations.
With giveaways and special offers from Revesby Village Centre tenants, there was also plenty to see and do including the Octonauts Live Show, a performance by The Kamis and a visit from the 106.5 Kiis Street Team. Children thoroughly enjoyed the face painting, petting zoo and Aussie Animals display, the amusement zone with jumping castle, super giant slide, mini train and Jurassic obstacle course were also extremely popular.
Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate.
A New Dining Precinct
Monday 11 April marked the commencement of the Club’s next major development project – a New Dining Precinct. Over the next 6 months the space that was home to Family Table Bistro and Cabaret Lounge will be transformed. This space will see a new bistro expand out over the Health Mates Fitness Centre and our Noodle Bar and Italian Restaurant repositioned to form one dining precinct.
The new Bistro, to be known as ‘Firestone’, will offer an open plan relaxed family dining experience, with alfresco dining, outdoor fireplace, a 90inch LED screen, Unpasteurised Tank Beer, Gelato and Dessert Bar and a Kids Room. The noodle bar, to be known as ‘Aunty Eight’s’, will offer an authentic Vietnamese street food experience, featuring an open theatrical kitchen with poultry and produce display.
The final restaurant for this new precinct is our Italian restaurant, ‘Bel Cibo’. This restaurant over the years has been very successful with back to back culinary industry awards. Bel Cibo will be relaunched as a new contemporary Italian dining experience featuring an iconic and boutique wine selection and cocktail bar.
Firestone and Aunty Eight’s are expected to open late October 2016. Bel Cibo will open late March 2017. During this time Bel Cibo restaurant will temporarily close and Bistro dining will operate out of this space and the lower Skyline Lounge.
The operating hours for bistro dining will be;
Sunday to Wednesday Lunch: 11am-3pm Dinner: 5pm-9pm
Thursday to Saturday Lunch: 11am-3pm Dinner: 5pm-11pm
A full menu can be viewed online.
Please see our staff should you have any questions. I thank you for your cooperation and patience during this time.
A FOND FAREWELL
On Sunday 3 April Foundation Member Joan Higgs sadly passed away.
Joan was the club’s last surviving female Foundation Member, out of the original fourteen female Foundation Members.
Joan, loyal wife of the late Brien Higgs and former Secretary Manager of Revesby Workers’ Club, in May 2012 officially opened the club’s multi-story carpark, named in her husband’s honour.
She will be remembered by many members and staff as one of the club’s most avid supporters. Joan was well respected and will be sorely missed.
As always, thank you for your patience and ongoing patronage as we continue to build a better club for all.
