Three Men and a Lady:
An intrepid advance search and destroy party, consisting John "Muscles" Irwin, "Speedy" Stan Erlam, Janet "Slim Line" Holmes and Phil "I can't lift a thing" Thomas, cleared the container which the club has been allowed for the storage of current and future equipment.
Most of the equipment previously held in the clubhouse has been moved to the container. The rest has been safely stored in the cupboards in the clubhouse. Coaches and athletes will be expected to ensure that all equipment used on training nights will be returned to its rightful place at the end of each training session.
The clubhouse is now much bigger than it used to be!!! It is expected to remain that way. Over the coming months it is expected the kitchen will be back in use.
