From time to time people drop out as other commitments take precedence and this has happened to us recently. We are therefore looking club members to join and participate however they can – be it working on small improvement projects to helping manage the clubs finances – all help is greatly appreciated
If any member is interested please approach a committee member when they see one, in case you forget the committee have silver tags (top perk!) and they will explain what is required and when
