Website search engine

Posted on 1st July 2019

The Club website now has a search engine. You can find it here and it's also visible on the side menu / fly out menu (mobile phone) that appears on every page of the website. For security reasons, search engines cannot access password protected pages but you will be able to search for any content that is not in the Members' Only section. The search engine is compatible with mobile phones, but if you get any problems, then please let me know. Many thanks (Howard - Webmaster)

This is her Facebook post - "I've downloaded sponsorship forms etc for Macmillan's trust and cancer research as I think both these charities are extremely important and truly deserve as much support as possible.

September Song (7th & 8th September)

Posted on 15th April 2019

Further details and a booking form are in Helen's Summer Dorfold Magazine or via this link


E-mail from Helen Lacey : "Nev and I have provisionally booked the Cotton Arms at Wrenbury for September song - (Saturday 7th September). This cruise involves sailing upto Wrenbury, Friday afternoon/ Saturday morning. Mooring outside the Cotton arms or very nearby. Bowling in the afternoon in a totally fun atmosphere, although there maybe be some serious bowlers out there? In the evening we will have a meal in the pub in an area reserved for us.
The reason I am writing to you all is to find out what interest we have for the trip so that I can book more firmly with an idea of numbers. I can then discuss what menu options we will have available depending on that figure.
Please can you confirm whether you intend to come on this trip or are unable to as soon as possible."
