Presidents Message

Hi all,

Just an update for you all and some things that you will need to know. At the last board meeting after much hard work by Peter and David we now have our new” Working With Children Policy” which has been accepted by the board. Hopefully we can upload this to the website members section for all to view, we will be having a training session on this before the AGM starts so VERY important all members are at the AGM for this important training so you understand the policy we have adopted.

Hoping we can get as many members, partners and guest to social dinner next, David, Annette and Jan will be representing the club at the Dale school graduation dinner.

Please don’t forget foundation night in November as listed on calendar a good showing of clubs members would be nice. Also if you have not registered to become a centurion as yet please let myself or Roshni know. If you are not sure what a centurion is please ask.  

Please see website for updated calendar all confirmed events now in red.

 Things to note

1)      Wednesday the 19th October bowling cancelled social dinner night instead at the Beachcomber new Bistro 6.30pm bring partners and friends pay for your own meal just a nice social night.

2)      Club visioning for November 5 now postponed will look for new date in Feb
