Alan Cooper has contacted with the following information. Arnolds Lane is blocked, Church Road is open. The lane from first gate to the patch is passable. I think Alan who lives very close to the club field, takes his dog there for a run first thing in the morning, I cant think of any other reason to be there in this weather.
Message from BMFA, its worth reading as it details new legislation regarding drones that will apply to us. In summery the impact does not look too onerous if you are a BMFA and Club member. Dear Club Secretary Please find below the link for the latest BMFA Club Bulletin 236 for you to pass to your members. http://www.bmfa.org/Clubs/Club-Bulletins Kind Regards Helen Feaver BMFA Membership Secretary

I’ve just had a message from John Veasey, to say that Pedham Place gave him wrong information yesterday and that the function room is not available on Thursday, so again we are having to postpone the Christmas buffet until next Tuesday 19/12/17. Same time same place. Sorry if this disrupts any plans you have made, but it has not been of our making.
Owing to the weather forecast for Tuesday night looking quite unfavourable, with possibly icy conditions, it has been decided to postpone the Christmas buffet until Thursday evening, same time same place. If you know a member who does not have internet access please let them know.
Contractors for Esso pipeline which runs under our field and the lane will be carrying out repair to the tarmac on the lane where the pipeline runs on Thursday 7th December so there will be no access that day.
On behalf of Bob Ryan and the rest of the committee thank you to those that turned up and did such sterling work on the lane yesterday; the car park was packed and the difference is amazing. I’m sorry that the committee were not much in evidence during the time that most of the work was carried out, as we were in a meeting with the jet flyers, discussing … Read More
