Volunteers are urgently needed for our summer league fixture on June 17th

May 31st, 2018

Although many of us are distracted by marathon week from 8th to 12th June, we must remember that we are hosting the summer league on Sunday June 17th at Headstone Manor.  Trish urgently needs volunteers for all sorts of roles: marshalling, setting up, helping at finish funnel, moving equipment to/from the scout hut and of course baking (so we can put on a good spread).  See volunteer section for contact information, and summer league page for details of where/when.
