The Spring Clean Starts NOW!
We would be very grateful if members could help us get the club ready for our opening weekend of 15th April by using the week before 10th - 14th to get involved with the spring clean.
This is very much a case of many hands etc and there is a list in the clubhouse of the jobs that need doing.
There is a book in the kitchen where completed jobs can be recorded so that we are not doubling up.

Captain V President Game Sunday 16th April.
This is the first official game of the season and usually a close fought contest! The Presidents team will be looking for a win this year having been beaten last year by the Captain’s team… again.
The team selection sheets for this game will go up soon. To save you having to go into the club, having to turn the alarm off and then re set it when you leave, I will put the sheets up where the picked team sheets usually go on the board by the gate.
It would be lovely to try and get as many members as possible up the club for this first game. We will be having a cream tea after the game. Our Raffle will pay for the cream tea and any prizes welcome. WHITES – register by 2pm please.
