Christmas arrangements

posted 7 Dec 2018, 07:29 by Bernard Purdy

Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association (RSDA) will be operating as normal on Saturdays throughout the Christmas and New Year period. We will only have 4 courts of the sports hall rather than the usual 6,  for some of the time on Saturday 22nd December, but we will still be offering the usual range of activities.
Archery and Crossbow will not take place on 27th December or 3rd January because the hall will be used for a play scheme during the holiday period.

Christmas Cards

Members may bring Christmas cards in to exchange with other members, up to December 15th, if they wish but, if they are not received by the addressee any cards brought in after Saturday 15th December will not be forwarded. They will be thrown away. Please make sure that the intended recipient is a member before leaving any cards as we can only forward the cards if we have their addresses.

Christmas Newsletter


Unfortunately Mike will not be able to produce a Christmas newsletter this year, as he is finding it too difficult to use the computer between his cataract operation.

The committee will, however, be sending out a brief newssheet and membership renewal forms.
We will be able to include some Christmas greetings, so please let me have them by 8th December.
They won't be in a fancy newsletter, just on a sheet of paper.

We all send our best wishes to Mike and hope that he has a speedy recovery, partly because he's a nice bloke and partly because we need him!
