If you fancy popping along then check with Neil Murton, Louise Royle or myself to confirm that someone will be their especially if you want access to the club kit.

Commercial Break – I seem to receive a large number of e-mails advertising coaching course, arranged trips and accommodation. If your interested in anything like this let me know and I’ll search through what’s turned and send anything interesting on. Also get a few boat for sale ads as well. Recently we received:

Sesia Petition -  If anyone signed the petition I linked to in the last e-mail, thank you. Apparently the environmental protection bill was passed and the valley should be safe for the foreseeable future.
