Some members aren’t rejoining this year due to family and work commitments and I would like to wish you well for the future and hopefully we will see you back again in the future. Tomorrow I will be removing all those from this page that haven’t rejoined and all the venues will have the gates codes changed. I will post the new codes on here and email all current members the new codes. I will also be inviting a number of people on the waiting list which continues to grow on a daily basis, I have had another 5 go on to the list in the last few days which proves that we are doing something right. It is also great to...
