Club Telecomms and Broadband

 

Following the recent telephone failure, the Committee decided not to "invest" a significant sum in a BT investigation of the problem (BT claimed there was no fault on the line). The telephone and the existing Broadband contracts were therefore terminated. The club now has a mobile Broadband sytem installed. Directors should have received sufficient information to make use of this when uploading results.

 

There is now a mobile phone (number  07761 257256) for calls to the club, though this is only switched on during normal weekly sessions and matches. At other times, if you need to contact anyone at the club you will need to do so via someone's mobile number.
