LADY CAPTAIN’S NEWSLETTER

To all Wellow Lady Members –

Thank you to all of the ladies who attended the Ladies AGM and for those of you who missed it I would like to start this newsletter by thanking Gill for all she has done for us. I am looking forward to the year ahead as Captain and will do my best to ensure the smooth running of our Section. This is something I had not anticipated undertaking again and I am counting on your support in making 2018 successful and enjoyable for everyone.
