Committee Meeting 4th March 2019 – points arising

Following the committee meeting of 04/03/19, I have been asked to circulate the following;

  • Many of you may be aware that Sue Rath will shortly be undertaking major surgery. As a result she will not be able to play this outdoor season- we wish her well.  Unfortunately she was due to run the Stroller`s league team for us. We were unable to find a volunteer from the committee to step in so are now looking for a volunteer or volunteers to run this team. The committee stress that should no one come forward then we will have no option but to withdraw from this league for the season.  Anyone interested is asked to contact the Chairman direct asap.  The committee will endeavour to give whoever takes over its support. If you have never run a team and would like some advice I can oblige.
  • As you know members are the lifeblood of the club. The committee is again mounting a recruitment drive for the summer based around two “taster” sessions to be held at the club on Sat 27th April and Sun 5th May between 10am -2pm. This will be supported by an advertising, poster campaign and leaflet drop locally.  If anyone is interested in helping distribute these in any way, (eg in Doctors’ surgeries) please speak with Ian Dodd. To this end the committee have agreed that we will not charge a membership fee for new applicants between now and the AGM in October.  Please spread the word and if you are able to attend either of these dates to help or have a roll-up, please do.

Derek Shermon.  Hon Sec.
