Tea Rota
28/10 – Pete Mainstone
04/11 – Nick Langridge

Many club members value the opportunity for tea & biscuits and a chat after the run on a Thursday. This only works if we have somebody willing to make the tea and we have had very few volunteers since we resumed meeting inside. To solve this we propose to go back to publishing a ‘Tea Rota’. This is an opportunity to give something back to the club. If it is your week to be on tea duty and you cannot make it then you are responsible for finding a replacement. The initial Tea Rota will be sent out separately to all Members by e-mail.
