Resurfacing of Pathway at Club Entrance Gateway
28 May 2013
Given the deterioration in the pathway leading from the Club gate, we have contracted Tarmac Services to resurface the area.
This work will be carried out this week on Wednesday 29th May 2013.
It is hoped that the job will be completed in one day, but that may depend, as ever, on the weather.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused - all in the name of progress!
Regards, Geoff Smith

Judy Thomas Masters the game
07 Mar 2013
After weeks of playing for the club skittles team and struggling with the dynamics of west country skittles, Judy struck form last night in the most difficult version of the game - Nominations. Although the club team lost in this Nominations k/o round, Judy scored a magnificent 28 pins to be the highest scorer in the "The Only Way is Up" team. Well done Judy!
New players are always welcome, contact Donna if you fancy having a go - Great Fun!

Your Help is Needed !!
25 Oct 2012
I hope that you have all enjoyed your tennis this year. I think you will agree that we are lucky to enjoy a great club with excellent facilities, and all this for a very economical price. This can only happen because of all the hard unpaid work carried out by the committee members and other volunteers.
Next year, we will have some vacancies, and I wanted to advise you of these so that you can think of coming forward and providing us with some "new blood". Committee posts that are unfilled for next year are:
- Club Secretary. This involves taking minutes for meetings, and sending e-mails to members and a small amount of external correspondence. It does not include the Membership Function as this is dealt with by our Membership Secretaries.
- Club Treasurer. Paying our bills, paying receipts into our bank, maintaining a record of accounts for occasional presentation at Committee Meetings and at the end of the financial year (end Dec).
- Teams Representative. To represent the interests of the teams on the committee.
Committee work is not arduous. Meetings are held at the Rugby Club. and there are about 10 meetings per year.
Also, if you feel that you can help the club in any other way (sponsorship or fundraising for example or any other function) please think about volunteering.
If you would like to find out a little more about how you can help the club with these vacancies or other help, then contact the Chairman (John Price) on 07713 737890 or email@example.com
