|AGM||15/10/2018||Our AGM took place in the Club House on 15/10 – all officers were re-elected to their posts and Melinda Simmons was also voted onto the main Committee. As well as the usual reports, Steve updated us on the Development Project – we now have planning permission for new courts and floodlights so will now be proceeding to purchase the lease!
