There’s such a lot going on at your Club that you can forget about the hideous economic and political mess around us. We’ve got a wide range of sporting and social activities to distract and entertain you whilst keeping you fit, social and engaged as our Autumn schedule continues!
Many of you have been in touch with regard to the Thatched Roof Fundraising. To raise over £90k in such a short space of time, only goes to show the generosity of our donors and how important your Club is to you and your fellow Members. We’re building on the changes we’ve made and hope those continued activities and the offer becomes increasingly compelling. The best help you can now give is through word of mouth. Tell your friends, families, neighbours and work colleagues what’s going on here and pleased do get involved!
Our AGM will be held on Friday 11th November. We are still working on the details but we aim to gather from 6pm with a start time of 6.30pm. If you are thinking of standing for the Board, please do get your name on the sheet on the notice board as soon as possible!
Here’s what’s going on!
The success of our Club’s sporting apparel has allowed us to make a super start. We have introduced a few new additions to our online store! It’s getting noticeably colder and wetter outside so why not treat yourself to a cosy fleece jacket or a beanie hat? We try to cater to all your sportswear needs, from shorts to our favourite softshell jackets! There’s a discount for Members and free postage for any orders over £50! All the details are HERE.
