Welfare: Barry Hayman is our Welfare Officer. Please contact Barry (216 3639) if you (or any club members) need support. Barry is very much St John associated and a good person to offer help, advice, or assistance when people are in need. If you put your hand up, you will be surprised to learn about the services available to you through both the Government Services and St John Ambulance. Do not try to do everything on your own. There are many Social Services you may not be away of, and St John also offers a number of support services.

Library: The lending library will issue books on the afternoon of meeting nights between 1 & 3 p.m. Other times by appointment - phone Roy: 216 6056

The library has a surplus of books, mainly duplicates, which we want to get rid of. The books will be laid out in the library on club nights and can be purchased for a gold coin donation.
