Grounds tidy-up 26th October

A message from Gordon.

“My greatest thanks to all who helped on Saturday. The turnout was amazing and thanks to their efforts, Alex and their gang were able to finish in one day (albeit 7.15 at night). I am sure the benefits, as last year, will be there for all to see and as a result the gardening crew will have a far easier time maintaining everything. I cannot thank everyone enough.

Thanks, Gordon”

Old fixtures books/lists

A call for help.

Averill is putting together an archive of the Club and has asked for help. She has a full set of Fixtures Books going back to 1955, but is asking if any member has any that are earlier than this. As the amalgamation of the Ladies’ and Men’s Clubs was relatively recent, the earlier Fixtures Books will be separate ones for Ladies and Men.

Averill will welcome any information that members can provide.
