Refurbishment and redecoration
As many of you will know we have nearly finished the kitchen refurbishment in preparation for the celebration our 150th Anniversary this year. The next part is to redecorate the clubhouse bar and the Murray Lounge. We have picked some dates that will be suitable for the committee volunteers and we are asking you to volunteer to help out – you don’t have to be an experienced decorator, there are plenty of jobs that need doing, such as taking everything down from the walls, putting masking tape around the door frame, etc. The details are given below:
Preparation Days: 20th & 21st January
Painting Days: 27th & 28th January and 3rd & 4th February
If you could volunteer to help, say for a morning or afternoon session, on any of these days that would be great. Please either email Phil Theaker or put your name up on the notice on the club notice board. Please remember this is your club and all offers of help will be willingly received!

Market stall and Open Day success!
Our Open Day on Sunday, 21st April, linked with having a stall and a grass area for target bowls at the Farmers’ Market on the Saturday in the Wellmeadow proved a huge success with approximately 13 potential full members being signed up under our £25 ‘introductory scheme‘. Big thank you to all who helped in making both days a great success.
