Sue volunteered to attend the N. Wilts’ customer forum meeting on Tuesday 29th June , where she will raise the issue of the ripped division curtain.Stuart thought that the sports center were considering moving the cricket nets to act as a division instead.
Rob raised the question of the post fixing holes ;the concesus was that these should be drilled out clean by the club.
It was agreed that we need two teams to allow the club to prosper – to do this we need to develop new players to feed into the B Team.
Advertising poster to be devised by Ben, for distribution on sports center and other likely noticeboards.

The club would like to remember Kev Hobbis who died of cancer earlier this year.Kev was an active member of the club for 10 years and a former chairman. His contribution and sense of humour will be missed by all who knew him.
A one minutes silence was held prior to the match with Melksham following his untimely death. The Kevan Hobbis Trophy was introduced to the club at the end of this season, and is intended to be awarded to a player in recognition of an achievement within the club .Voting for future recipients should be accompanied with a reason why it is thought they should receive the award and should reflect Kev’s sense of humour.
