05/23 Urgent News

To all Tickhill Riding Club Members,

Dear Members,

I write to advise that we have recently had a resignation from the committee and others are muting this will be their last year as a committee member of the Club.
With this in mind unless we have several new committee members coming forward the Club will most likely fold at the end of the year.
We have recently welcomed one new member to the committee but need more people to come forward and participate more in Club matters.
The number of helpers on event days has continued to diminish to the point that the few of us that are there are having to do several tasks and to be honest this is becoming both tiring and unenjoyable.
if you are able to help on event days we now have a list of duties so people can be allocated tasks and we need to fill some 12 roles and two first aiders minimum per event.
We also need help setting up prior to events and further details regarding dates and times will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
Failure to support this Club will lead to its non-existence

Paul Dickenson
