Following the departure of Paul and Isobel, the club has appointed a “caretaker manager”. One time second team skipper and long time former steward, Gilly Palin, resumes control of day to day management of the social club until the new steward is appointed. Since his retirement as full-time steward, Gilly has never been far away from the club, either providing relief cover during the steward’s holiday, running the dominoes team, or just watching the cricket and enjoying a pint. So we all have every confidence that he will keep things running smoothly in the interim period.

He lost his glasses again tonight… anyone seen them?  People say that the loss of one sense enhances the sensitivity of the other senses. For example the best piano tuners tend to be blind………..unfortunately Gilly is deaf as a post.
