Dear Members
I hope all is still well with you all. I must congratulate you for the amount raised for UNICEF and thank those who took part and organised it.

Congratulations to the winners of the mixed pairs and best of luck to all those taking part in the Championship pairs next week.

I chose Velindre Cancer Centre this year as I am sure most of you know somebody who has benefited from it.
With new building developments taking place they will be glad of all the donations they can get.

I hope you have all had your first vaccinations.  It is the first step to us all being able to be back in the club.
We are all looking forward to being able to play together and meeting our friends again.

         Look after yourselves and stay safe.
