We’ve been promising this for a while now, and we’ve finally got it organised. As you know, Otley Pub Club [OPC] membership has always been free, and always will be. Membership entitles you to receive our twice-monthly newsletters containing news about Otley and its pubs direct to your inbox, as well as notification of special events. At the end of March, those newsletters were being sent out to no fewer than 436 members, and we really appreciate your continuing interest and support.



We thought the time had come when we should try to offer more to our members than just information, so we’re introducing ‘Premier’ membership which will come with financial benefits. For just £10 a year you will be able to obtain discounts at some pubs in Otley, as well as ad hoc special offers and discounts at Otley Pub Club special events and on future merchandise. Currently, Stew & Oyster Otley are offering a 10% discount on all food and drink to OPC cardholders and all their party up to a total of 6! That means if 6 of you had a meal there, with a drink each, you could save over half of your membership fee in just one visit! [OPC committee members have been trialling this for the past month, and the 10% discount is on everything – from a single drink to meals and drinks for the whole family.] Other pubs in town have been waiting for the membership card launch before confirming their own offers, but they are definitely in the pipeline and we’ll tell you about them as soon as they are confirmed.



And that’s just the first money-saving offer! For those of you attending our beer tasting masterclass event with Cask Marque’s beer sommelier Annabel Smith this Thursday at The Horse and Farrier, ‘Premier’ membership will be available for just £5! And the benefits don’t end there. This year’s membership will run until the end of July 2019, giving you 15 months for the price of 12. You will be able to pick up your membership card [a laminated version of the one shown here] on the night, and it will be valid immediately. If you aren’t coming to the event on Thursday, watch out for an announcement in the next newsletter about how you can buy your Premier membership, either in Otley for cash or via the website. [We’re still in the process of setting up the online Paypal and credit card facility.]


AND FINALLY  .  .  .

  .  .  .  Please share this news with your friends and family. You don’t have to be an existing OPC member to buy a Premier membership card [although that purchase will automatically make you a  member]. The more people who join, the more money OPC have to help them deliver future projects in Otley, and the more customers will be tempted into Otley’s pubs. So we all end up winning! Existing OPC members who don’t want to take advantage of this money-saving offer will continue to receive the same informative newsletters that they always have. Members old and new can stop receiving correspondence by emailing us at at any time, but Premier members email address will be kept on file until the next renewal date when they can let us know their continuing preferences.
