Happy New Year to you all.
We apologize for this belated edition of our first newsletter for 2018, but due to several unforeseen circumstances, we were slightly delayed in putting this edition together. However, we hope that now all the festivities are out of the way, we can look forward to our 2018 calendar of events. With this in mind, could we remind our member's that your membership renewals are due very soon. In order to avoid disappointment when entering any of our events, please try to ensure that you have left plenty of time for your renewal to be processed. All renewals, or new membership forms, should be sent to Diana McGrail, our Membership Secretary. All the Committee contact details can be found in the newsletters or on our website. Please DO NOT send cash though as we are unable to guarantee safe arrival via the post.
As you can also see in this newsletter and on our website, we have already managed to arrange several events, so please remember to grab your diaries and pen them in. If you have any queries regarding a certain event, please contact the organiser first rather than other Committee Member's. More importantly, if any of our many member's can offer to help set up or offer a hand on the day, then we would be very grateful. Helpers are always rewarded with a voucher or gift and will be made to feel very welcome.
As many of you know, we sadly lost a very valued and highly respected member, Pauline Hill, due to cancer at the end of last year. Our thoughts are with her husband, Colin and her family and we have included some memoirs of her involvement with our Club in this newsletter.
Finally, just a brief update regarding out new portacabin. We are currently having the floor redone and the white goods removed and hopefully will be moving all the equipment across from our old one which will then need to be either scrapped or disposed of. If anyone knows of someone who could help us with this, then please contact a Committee Member.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
