AGM - 14th June 2016

The Club is holding its AGM on Tuesday 14th June at 7.30pm at Oaklands. This is your opportunity to support and shape the club for the following year. We are always looking for volunteers and fresh faces with new ideas to help keep the club running smoothly, but you will not be pressured into taking on any jobs. If you are interested in any roles, there is a list on the club notice board. You can also speak to the person currently in the role if you want to know what it entails, and there is also the option to shadow a role.

Looking forward to seeing you there
