Request for Help

Standby players and helpers

Can you help - We try to be able to give all people a game on Wednesday evenings, Monday, Wednesday and Friday Mornings but we are reliant on members being available to help.  We have a few regulars who we are grateful for their assistance and time.  A few more that we call on would be good.

Helpers are also required at novice sessions and anyone who can help on a Monday evening please let us know
