Recent Happenings & Committee Update

The Carrfields Cockies Classic was rescheduled due to the weather, but ended up being a well attended event on 27th May. Very well run and supported, many thanks to the Ladies Committee for the amazing catering and also to our major sponsor Carrfields.

Rebecca (AKA Becs) O'Neale, our Club Manager, is finishing up on Thursday 23rd June. We wish her well with her future endeavours and look forward to seeing Becs about the club in a non-official capacity. During Becs'5-year stint with us, she has ensured that the Club has grown and developed into an efficient, informed, well run and tech savvy club. You have left big shoes to fill, thanks for all your hard work Becs!

Thankfully, the Club is going into a quieter period of the year and this will hopefully allow the (yet to be appointed) new administrator / bar manager to find their feet. Please bear with the committee as we transition, if you have any major concerns please feel free to contact me (Karen Barbour) at [email protected] or on 0274282851.

Regards, KB (Club Captain)
