The 2023 AGM will take place on Thursday 25th January at 7.30pm in the clubhouse. The slight delay in this has been due to unforeseen accounting and auditing reasons. Full notice and agenda will be sent 2 weeks prior in the New Year.
As ever, I make a plea for as many members to attend as possible and for those looking to make a contribution to put themselves forward for roles and management committee. We need help specifically with a Membership Secretary role and a Sponsorship role. Also, if anyone would like to be considered for any of the 2024 skipper roles then now is the time to say. If anyone is interested in getting more involved or if you want anymore information then speak to the Club Sec – Nathan Wilkes who will be happy to help.
We’ll be announcing some plans we are putting in place for next season from a facilities and playing perspective, so I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
In the meantime I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
