Just to let all members know that Tree Surgeons will be on site today, Tuesday 28th, and Wednesday
29th January between 9am & 3pm so the inner car park will be out of use. The trees at the end of the carpark are diseased and sadly need to be removed. Other trees in the car park are being pruned. Please take care when walking into the site during these times.
Members and guests may park in front of the gates, or use Harman Drive (parking restrictions apply 10-11am at the bottom end and 2-3pm at the top end) or Farm Avenue (parking restrictions apply 2pm-3pm)
We will be replanting the area later in the season.
Thames Water are here sometime between 8am-1pm on Wednesday 29th January and will
be turning off the water for half an hour to read our meter.

Marina Lavarello is now well established as the new head coach, with new coaching programmes for adults and children going well.
The tennis court floodlights are being put in this week and next (weeks commencing November 18th and 25th), and there is likely to be some effect on court availability.
The Cricket Section now has our annual Clubmark and Accreditation. We are trying to set up an Academy with a professional coach with backing from Middlesex County Cricket Club and we would hope to have news re this project in early 2014. We will be building up to the new season from January onwards, with indoor nets starting to take place at Lord's. We are also actively trying to recruit new members as usual for next season.
The club hosted a tournament last Saturday with players from varying clubs across London. It was such a success that a regular tournament will be a feature for 2014.
The squash club now has two coaches available for individual and group lessons, Patrick Ado & Abid Khan - see website for details. The squash club is going from strength to strength but we are still looking for new members. If anyone would like to have a go or knows of people interested in playing, please spread the word about Brondesbury Squash (email@example.com for all enquiries).
And lastly - just a gently reminder to park sensibly, and to respect our neighbours regarding leaving the bar late and dropping off children. Thank you!
