ARRANGEMENTS DURING THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
In the light of current Government advice, it has been decided that in order to protect the wellbeing of our members and visitors, our weekly club meetings will be suspended for the foreseeable future.
The well being of members is very important to the Club and we will be looking at innovative non contact ways of working together to support each other. If you need help during this time please contact the club and we will do all we can to help you .
End of year message from President Malcolm: I hope you all had a peaceful and safe Christmas. Despite the pandemic, the Club continued to meet on line with regularly 17 members and friends attending. We still managed to complete projects supporting our communities ranging from those in care homes, Lisvane and Thornhill station, supporting refugees and young people coming out of care and starting their independent lives to name a few. We finished the year off with murder mystery night which was a brilliant night and for our club.Nothing gets in the way of fellowship. In addition we raised £140 at the last count for Macmillan.
