  1. AGM – Thursday 16th May (Club Year 1st April 2024 – 31st March 2025)

The AGM will be after Club Night on Thursday 16th May at 20.30. We are on the lookout for any Members who would consider standing for the Committee. If you are interested, please speak to any Committee Member who will give an idea of what is involved. We have a very successful Club but we would like to introduce some new blood with new ideas into the Committee in 2024-25.
