South the place for new manager

SOUTH Services Club’s new manager has just secured a good deal.

Colin Green began working on the south side of Grafton on February 21, just three weeks ago.

He was approached on several occasions by the South Grafton Ex Servicemen’s Club to become its new manager.

“I left my job as manager of the Grafton District Services Club, the place I worked for 30 years,” Mr Green said.

“I decided to take on the new challenge and change.”

The new South manager wants to look to the future.

“I want the club to be the place to be – the number one entertainment area in the Clarence,” he said.

“I am looking forward to my future here.

“This club has a great team environment – we all work well together, and we don’t believe in-fighting.”

After a week of being in his new job, Mr Green secured Infinity for Saturday night DJ nights.

“I was the one who implemented this idea and also secured it,” he said.

Mr Green said the costs of employing Infinity would equate to $5000-$6000 a week.

“We are outlaying a fair bit of money, but we are hoping for a good return.”

The South Services Saturday nights are expected to begin on April 2 and will run from 9pm-2am.

Mr Green said the night, coined ‘Live it up at South Services’, would have national DJs from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

“I am also hoping to secure international DJs to headline,” he said.

Mr Green said the South Services would be a great new place to enjoy a night out.

“Our club wanted to look for a new scene for people between the ages of 18-25.”

The venue will cater for young adults and Friday night entertainment for those in their 30s-40s.
