PRESIDENTS NOTE

This week we did not have our normal weekly meeting, but instead asked members to meet at DIK for a much-needed working bee session. I apologise for not being able to attend. It was very pleasing to hear, that it was well attended and thank-you to the following from our club that were able to make it; Noel and Lorraine McInnes, Henry and Jane Drury, Gordon Cheyne, Katrina Flinn, Julie Collete and Peter Lugg.
