Annual subscriptions are now due and all members who supplied an e-mail address will have received their bills by this method of distribution. Please contact Dermot Condon should you have any queries regarding subscriptions and don’t forget, there is a free draw for those members who have signed up before the end of January for a free 2014 subscription.
Used mobile phones are still needed to help us reach the magic number of 250 so that we can get a defibrillator for the club, so if you have any lying around, please leave them into the collection box in the front hall.
