The next meeting of the National Club Committee is on 20 November. Regional Club Committee meetings will be held ahead of these so that issues for discussion can be cascaded upwards. If your club has any issues which it would like to raise then do contact your County Representative; a list of these can be found here. If your county does not yet have a CCR, please consider whether anyone at your club might be suitable and willing to take on this important role. If there is, please inform your County Secretary.
