General League Secretary. Change of Address.


March 2013. 12 Months later and mail is still going astray!

All written correspondence and result sheets should be sent to the new address and nothing to the previous one. To facilitate this, new result sheets, containing the new details have been distributed to club secretaries along with self-adhesive postal address labels. There is one sheet of 20 labels for each team captain, plus one spare sheet for the club secretary to retain.

It is imperative that all old stock of result sheets and address labels are now destroyed.


(Saturday 31 March 2012)
