Welcome to 2023.  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and wish you health and prosperity for 2023.  I have been watching along from afar over the summer and have been very impressed with the fantastic results at the Outdoor Nationals.  Well done to all who took part and once again showed fantastic club spirit.
