It is with great sadness that we have to notify Members of the passing of John Hall today at Salisbury Hospital.
John was our oldest serving Member and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of his company both on and off the green.
Our thoughts to out to his Family and Friends at this time.
Well done to all of those who made themselves available for the clearing of mats and carpetting from the rink ditches on Wednesday.and also to those who took the time to send their apologies for their unavailability.
This is a necessary task at his time of the year and the nature of it not particularly appealing.
The effort put in by all is most appreciated and I am certain that those who could not make it will also extend their thanks for the effort made on behalf of the club.
