posted 28 Mar 2014, 11:06 by Athletic Union President
Hi All,

Hard to believe that it's already the end of Spring holidays! Congratulations to those that have been elected to their new positions. The bulletin mailing list will continue to go to the Club Captains/Presidents personal email accounts until we have received all of the committee contact information for the new committees. Please make sure you pass it along to the newly elected Club Captains/Presidents as well! There are quite a few very important notification so please read carefully and pass along the relevant information!

Club Development Meetings - One of the ways in which Saints Sport supports its clubs is by providing advice and support from a professional and, perhaps more usefully, external perspective. Club committees are therefore invited to book a meeting with the Club and Competitions Manager, Pete Burgon, for a chat on their club in general, specific issues or a combination of both. Please use this poll - - to select a time that suits you to come to the Sports Centre to meet with Pete.
