The Annual General Meeting will be held at the Hall on Thursday 14th May,2015 at 7:15pm. The Trustees would be obliged if committee members from all sections attend if at all possible. Members of the Welfare are, of course, cordially invited.

The Welfare is currently looking for funding to help renovate the Ladies Locker Rooms. Although the Ladies' Section have endeavored to improve these facilities there is still a lot of work to do. The Trustees are seeking the views of both members and the local community regarding this matter and any other improvements they would like to see to the Hall and the Grounds of the welfare.

Two charity days have recently been held at the Welfare. Both of these were very successful and further information can be found on the News page in the Golf Section
