AGM Report 2022

We would like to thank all your committee for making us so welcome to ARCA. You dealt with us very fairly over the lockdown period.

It is a really good hall and always clean and tidy. The facilities are excellent and car parking good. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating.

Thank you for advertising our programme in the hall and on your website.

As you may know we purchased a signage flag as members found it difficult to find the entrance especially in the winter.

We are really pleased we changed our venue to ARCA. Thank you all once again.

Vicki Hodgkiss.
