It's World Ranger Day - today, Thursday.
Car Parking - a rota has been started for people wanting a lift to the club during August - details on the notice board at the club or contact Sandra Benson for details. Don't forget the road outside is now One Way, and you can park on both sides of the road.
Our teaching program commences on Tuesday 7th October and there will be lessons for beginners and 2nd year students. In addition to this a number of members are prepared to give seminars on specific topics - if there is anything you specifically want covered please e-mail the club and we will try and get it covered. Please advertise these lessons to your friends. Teaching notices are available for promoting around the areas - if you are able to assist please contact John Taylor who has copies of them.
An average week for slams - 14 small slams were bid and made.
Summer is here and a number of committee members are away for a period - those members that are here full time please add your names to the lists for Directors', Scorers' and Cashiers to share the work-load around.
An article from one of our member's Neighbourhood Watch will be posted on the "News Page" - below is a resume of it.
This is a favourite time of year for the ‘walk in thief’ who sees that everyone is enjoying themselves by the pool whilst the front door is open with the usual array of wallets, bags, car keys etc on the hall table just waiting to be picked up and it only takes a second and no noise. You should always lock the front gate and any doors that are out of sight when you are outside. A favourite ploy of thieves is to grab a pile of leaflets from a shop and pretend they are advertising distributors which gives them cover for entering properties that don’t have a secure boundary and stealing the handbag off the hall table etc. BE AWARE!!
