Over the coming weeks I will be putting hands of interest on the new Surrey website, mainly Surrey events, sometimes national events , and some club events. I will be introducing you to HH, (Hindsight Harriet) who tells me what I should have done, and less frequently, what she might have done differently.

Best Behaviour is also a key item - click here to view the Palooka's take on it
