An options paper was attached to the Club newsletter email concerning the future of the Croquet Centre at Cairnlea.  Some notes, taken during a  recent VCA zoom meeting, were also attached.  The meeting was held to inform members  about the proposed options, on which the VCA is seeking feedback.

Please take the opportunity to read the options paper and notes as the  BCC Committee would appreciate members input.
