Message from Peter Barnes Club has its big fundraiser this coming Friday with the Sportsman’s Dinner at Ling Farm barn (with guest speaker Graham Thorpe) and we need to do a few jobs before hand ie set up bar, clean barb, tables and chairs and erect a marquee. We have planned to do these jobs on this Wednesday and Thursday evenings. So if possible could we get as many members up to the barn for these evenings from 5.30. More hands make light work please try and make one or both these evenings. Cheers, Barnesy
A message from Chairman Paul Feavearyear It was good to see a decent turn out at nets a fortnight ago, very positive. Hopefully it will be the same at the next session which is tomorrow, Tuesday 13 Feb, with the addition of a few different faces! Hethersett Academy 7-9pm. £3 per session. We are in the process of finalising sponsors for next season and so far we have seven confirmed, and are hopeful of one or two more. If anyone else, or perhaps your employer, is interested in sponsoring the club please get in touch with me or one of the other committee members. Thank you.
