Whilst we ladies are enjoying all the competitions we do not forget the significant work, time and effort put in by individuals who organise these for us. Thank you. Also, however busy you may be, please remember to support the Ladies Umbrella each wednesday afternoon. Numbers are very low and the competition may be at risk if this continues.
