Since the last Noticeboard was published Club Conferences have been held at Cheltenham and Huddersfield, and members of Council have also attended and made presentations at the AGMs of the South Eastern and East Anglian Federations. There has been much valuable feedback from these events, and it is hoped before the end of the year to announce an improved range of services to member clubs.
Those of you who had regular dealings with the office when it was located at Hurlingham will be saddened to hear of the sudden and untimely death of Janet White, who for five years worked as Assistant to the Secretary. The smooth running of the office during this period owed much to her efficiency and cheerful good humour, and these qualities will be greatly missed by both Merton and Surbiton Croquet Clubs, as well as a number of organisations outside the world of croquet.
