As we go into August and the holiday season, we have decided not to run the Friday night BBQs.
Many of the volunteers are on holiday and they all need a break before starting again next year!
Emma Spriggs would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have helped over the summer: Kirsten and Tony Coltart; Bill and Lesley Wells; Nick, Tilly and Kate Javes; John Slevin; Alistair Howell; Stacy Crowden; Jo Williams; Paul Roberts; Jane and Jason Bovington; Paul and Hannah Bodin; Ian and Alex O'Connor; Steve Prout; Nick Bazin.
As you can see it has certainly been a team effort.
The bar will still be open of course so please do still come along to the club on a Friday night...
The club would like to thank Emma for all her hard work in coordinating the Friday night BBQ (and century club) - fantastic effort
