Corona Virus Update.


A committee meeting was held this Wednesday Morning (18th March) following the Governments strategy for the Corona Virus pandemic.


     The consequences are as follows.


      All Thursday Club Meeting are suspended until further notice.


      Wednesday mornings are to be for general maintenance purposes only, it is not for social visits or activities.


      Grass cutting will follow a rota that will be published on this page and will still be conducted on a Wednesday weather permitting


      For any work being carried out on days other than Wednesday's there must be at least 2 persons present.


      Public Running is suspended for the forseeable future.


     These actions will put pressure on club funds and therefore any expenditure must be approved by the Chairman and Treasurer before hand.



     Many thanks for your continued support in these difficult times, the WDSME committee




Thanks for all the generous donations we have now purchaced our new projector, so it's goodbye to spots! We finally settled on an Epson and so far, with limited playing with time, it looks great, almost too good for us. This also means we can finally use the replacement DVD and Blu Ray player that was purchaced a while ago through Thursday raffle funds but proved to be incompatible with our old spotty one

It still has to be fitted to the ceiling but fortunately our CME  doesn't seem to have a big enough nail so a new mount is to be sourced.

The projector has added security features but until it is fixed in position it's going to live with me as we would hate it if one of the light-fingered who roam about in these times decided to call.
