SUNDAY CLUB HELPERS: The monthly Sunday Club seems to be taking off but needs volunteers who can set out tables and chairs and who could take charge of New Age Kurling. Also, someone is needed to stand in for the Sunday Club Co-ordinator (Caroline Higgins) in case of illness, emrgency or holidays; there is an associated stipend for that 'deputising'.  Please contact Caroline (T: 01298 27638) for more information. It would be a shame if the Sunday Club had to fold through lack of helpers
