The Committee give notice that we will be holding an EGM to present work that we have been carrying out to resolve legacy issues with old accounts, and to put in place systems for successive committees that will greatly improve the financial management of the club. Proposals include a change to the financial accounting year - we are keen to implement this ahead of the AGM in September hence the calling of an EGM.

The agenda and supporting documents for the EGM are online, at Please read them in advance, so you know what is being proposed, and bring a copy to the meeting.
