As of the 31st of January 2021 Barry Conroy will step down as Chairperson of the Club. This leaves a vacancy for the position which we will attend to at the AGM which will be arranged as soon as all Covid restrictions are lifted and we can meet up. In the meantime we are pleased to announce that Robin has kindly agreed to step in as 'acting' Chairperson until that time
If anyone is interested in putting themselves forward for the position then please contact Robin or one of the other committee members
The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Barry for all his hard work over the last few years and in particular for all his efforts during this (very difficult) last year.
