It has been agreed that because of the confidential information, membership forms being sent to county office by Royal Mail must be sent by recorded delivery.  Please will you write the members name on the reverse of the photograph as they can get separated from the form. Membership card packs must be signed for upon receipt and will be available at county meetings.




If you have not already done so please forward reports for the year book to Catherine Bunting asap. A page sponsorship form is attached, please try to get sponsors, Clubs will be expected to sponsor the pages on which their club report appears.
