A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR MEMBERS!
Many thanks to everyone for your continued support. The club continues to thrive and is in a healthy financial state. Refurbishment work is continuing on the first and second floors and our new central heating system is proving very successful. The next job will be electrical rewiring and we are fund-raising for that at the moment. All donations gratefully received!
NEW PHONE NUMBER
The club now has a new phone number. It is 07542009554. The old one will shortly be discontinued
As always our greatest difficulty is in finding enough volunteers to run the club on a day-to-day basis without overwhelming the few stalwarts who do it at the moment—something we are perilously close to doing.
If you feel you could help out by staffing the bar, or preparing Saturday lunches, once every four or five weeks, it would be an enormous help. Full training is given and you wouldn’t be thrown in at the deep end to cope on your own. And if it’s any consolation, none of us had ever done it before either! Please think it over.
All welcome. Meets Saturday afternoons. See notice-board for dates or phone Moira 699673
