Committee members needed

Committee members needed

We need your help – the club is run via a committee of drawn from the membership all of whom give up their free time to helping make the club function. 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

Overnight Hall closure

We are going to close the hall to all members overnight from 23:00pm to 08:30am as of the 1st March

Should there be any member who needs access beyond these times then please contact a committee member to discuss

Cheers

Andrew
