The Kiosk Main Beach
Summer is just around the corner and Anglesea SLSC is excited to announce the imminent opening of the club’s COVID-safe and flexible pop-up kiosk called ‘The Kiosk Main Beach’. From Friday December 4, locals and visitors to our slice of Surf Coast heaven will be able to grab a coffee, quench their thirst and satisfy hungry appetites at our new takeaway facility in the revamped Ray Marsh Room. The Kiosk Main Beach will be open from 7am to 3pm initially Friday, Saturday & Sunday serving light breakfast and lunch. From December 27th The Kiosk will be open 7 days a week with last orders being taken around 8pm. On offer will be everything from fruit salad, muesli and yogurt for a healthy start to the day, along with the likes of salads, wraps and toasties for lunch, through to fish, calamari and chips after a day at the beach as the sun starts to set on the Great Ocean Road. In between, the kids can wander up the ramp to grab a drink, smoothie or ice-cream at what is hoped will be a facility with something for everyone. The Kiosk Main Beach is a summer pop-up in response to our selected food and beverage partner SOLT requesting a delay to the opening of their dining venue and kiosk. This decision has been driven by the completion of construction works so close to summer, the uncertainty and complexities associated with the impact of Coronavirus in Victoria and the need for the club to close the “old” wing of our wider facility after summer – including the Ray Marsh Room – to complete mandated remedial works to bring that older wing of our club up to the same level of compliance with today's building code.
Into the evening, The Kiosk Main Beach will run alongside the club’s new Jimpy’s Bar, which will operate on the top floor of the clubhouse in the spectacular John Worrell Room. Jimpy’s Bar will be open to members, guests and the community, with members and social pass holders receiving discounted prices. Come Summer there will be no better view in town. The concept for Jimpy’s Bar has already been warmly received by the surf club membership, but we are still seeking volunteers to join Jimpy’s Bar Crew for the 2020-21 season. We are seeking expressions of interest from members over the age of 18 who are prepared to become part of Jimpy’s bar crew on a rostered basis for a few nights over Summer. Those volunteering need no prior hospitality experience, but are required to hold a current Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate, which can now be completed online in a course that takes a few hours. If you are interested in helping please contact the Club by the end of November via email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest. This will allow us to continue assembling rosters and to communicate opening hours. Please email your existing RSA Certificate or one gained on completion of your short course to email@example.com by December 14. We stress Jimpy’s Bar won’t get off the ground without enough support from members both behind and in front of our new bar. Please get involved.
