The trustees are pleased to announce that, effective 3rd April, we have appointed Richard Banbury as the Club Manager, and Cerith Lewis as the Assistant Manager.

Richard is well known to the majority of our members and I know you will want to congratulate him on his new position. The Trustees believe that Richard's appointment will bring continuity to the thriving club that Julia has achieved since we reopened after lockdown.

We are sad to see Julia leave her position but Julia is not leaving the club. Julia, in time, will be back teaching at the club and we might even see her directing some of our duplicate sessions. We will of course see Julia and Vince playing at the club.

The trustees look forward to working with Richard and Cerith and I ask that you give them some time to get their bearings.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally wish Julia well and congratulate Richard and Cerith on their new roles.
