You say “Hurlingham will not endear itself to the local community by making itself more ‘elite’, ie by reducing external activities. ”
Can you explain how non-member events, such as the Lord Taverners evening last week, or an estate agent’s training day, does anything to endear itself to the local community?
As proposers of the recent resolution to substantially reduce these events we are, from time to time, challenged with your reason for continuing them. We struggle to learn what good they do to the locals. Most of the local community I speak to say they are a nuisance.
