Fun Workgroups!

Would you like to be part of one of the following fun workgroups?

Clubhouse (inc. Bar and Galley)

Each group consists of 3-4 members. The group has at least 1 if not 2 General committee members and other members are assisting.
Of course at the moment these groups can only meet electronically, but we are looking forward to having face to face meetings again, when the government guidelines allow.

Reply to this Email and we will put you in touch with the group that you are interested in.

If you have any concerns about the running of the club, please do reply to this email and we will put your questions to the GC for their reply.

Watch this space for more information about what each group are up to as the year goes on.
