Club Update July 2015

A previous Chairman used to have his Blog which I know I enjoyed reading as it kept us all up to date with matters both past, present and future. Wanting to resurrect this feature I have decided to introduce my own version but as yet I don’t have a funky name for it. Any suggestions will be greatly welcomed!
