Finally following on from our AGM last week we are looking ultimately for a Sports Secretary (Generous Honararium is attached to this post) and a Treasurer. Chris would like to step down from some of the current workload!

YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!
RMC’s Annual General Meeting will be held this Tuesday 5th February 2019 7.30pm at Richmondshire Cricket Club, followed by an Ordinary meeting. As always, all members will be made very welcome and we would like to invite you to come along and have your say about how your Club is run and to get more involved. If you have fresh ideas which you would like the Club to consider, then come along to the meeting and voice your thoughts. The Club always needs and welcomes new helpers and there are a few roles to fill and help out with. For any Club to continue successfully it needs fresh faces to join in and help and also younger members to step up and get involved with the organisation side. Don’t just sit back and talk among yourselves about what you think the Club should or shouldn’t be doing, come to a meeting, offer your help and work alongside us. We don’t bite, you will be made welcome and we will listen to you.
If you can’t make the meeting, but would like to offer your help in some way, however big or small, please let one of the committee members know or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you!
