"Well, we have a pre-season lunch and an after season lunch"
Well, we have a pre-season lunch and an after season lunch, and during the winter we have a coffee morning the first Monday of every month, where people just wander in, have a cup of coffee, chat over and see whatís going on. During the year, we tend to be busy on our own volunteering duties, so we donít get together during the season, but we get together more during the winter, actually, than during the season.
