To those of you who actually read the two main notice boards in the Clubhouse - Upstairs and Gents changing room - you will notice that they have been tidied up. 
Hopefully this will lead to better communications between members and Officers of the Club.
It will when you have a comment to make about any function of the club, to be able to address those comments to the right person. (but not verbally at weekends). 
You can also use the Suggestions/Comments book on the table in the Lobby.
If you have any constructive comments how these Notice Boards can be further improved, then please let me or Jane Ashworth know.
