Hi everyone,  this is the regular Thursday posting to let you know what is coming up in the near future

This week


I am really pleased to be able to tell you that Jon Hall will take over as acting chair on the 1st of January and I am also delighted to welcome William Brewis on to the committee as acting vice chair.  Formal appointments will be made at the AGM.


Thanks from Denise below:-

“Several people came forward to help decorate the club house last weekend.  It was Rob Hanks that started it by getting the paint for the door into the hangar.  Mark from Cornwall painted the door by Martin’s office after someone else had rubbed it down.  So I would like to thank Rob Hanks, Walter Bauman, Jon Hall, Dave D’Arcy for helping with the painting and Dave Crowson for helping with removing and replacing the pictures and notice boards, in the main club house.  Also Jon Hall, Baron Taylor have offered to go during the week to almost finish off,  So a big thank you to them as well.



Your team this weekend is:

Saturday:  Clive Crocker, Allan Reynolds, Guy Hartland, Jon Hall

Sunday:  Denise Hughes, Guy Hartland, Mark Wakem
