Our AGM was held last Wednesday and welcome on to the committee new members Paula O’Malley and Ed Gibbons. Ita Elliott, Tom Gallery and Johnny Kelly are not going ahead this year so thanks to all three for all their work over the last few years. The rest of the committee are continuing however there are two vacancies in the positions of Chairperson and Ladies Captain so if you would like to come on board please let me know as these two important positions will need to be filled and it is unfair to keep asking people who have served previously.
