The A Team Medal on 24th September has been postponed (due to clash with Malcolm Traves' funeral). This will now take place on Monday 8th October.

Peter Watson

The Club is saddened to learn of the death of Peter Watson, former Member, on Saturday 15th September.  A resident of Knowle Gate Care Home, he passed away at Solihull Hospital.

He had been a Member for over 30 years and was Seniors Captain from 1992-1994.

We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Doreen, son Mark, daughter Diana, and family and friends.

We will advise of funeral arrangements as soon as we are aware.

Malcolm Traves (updated funeral arrangments)

It is with sadness that I have to advise Members that Malcolm Traves passed away on Monday 3rd September.

Charity AMAM

On Wednesday the 29th August 22 teams battled to win the prizes at the Charity AMAM raising money for the Lady Captain's Charity, Guide Dogs.

We have already sponsored one puppy "Heaton" but our aim was to raise £5,000.00 to name another one.

Whilst the team of Mrs Del Lakin-Hall, Chris Lavery, Nic Heath and their captain Gary Reay won first prize, Guide Dogs were also winners as we raised enough to sponsor our second puppy.  Thank you to everyone who took part and gave so generously to the Charity.

Lady Captain
