AGM 2021

This year’s AGM will be held on Tuesday 23rd March 2021 at 7.30 on Zoom.

Sadly, we’ve decided that there won’t be a lecture this year as this seems an unnecessary addition on Zoom; the lecture being an event to enhance the enjoyment of us all getting together at the Tennis Club, which just isn’t the same remotely.

Current Committee members are standing again and elections will take place at the meeting. If anyone is interested in helping to  plan the future direction of the Society and supporting its Management, please get in touch with Jo Cuttell, Chair, or any other Committee member, as we are always looking for enthusiastic members who are prepared to volunteer their time and energy.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on 23rd March
