Newsletter NL154 – 3rd March 2023

Editor - Derek Godridge and the team: PCC News:

Last night was an excellent “Battle” with our old friends St Ives CC. My word, for a club that only has a single number of members, they certainly punch above their weight !! Needless to say, we came a close second in both the digital and print sections and we saw many excellent images from both teams. Not to worry, we had another great club night that was well supported along with an amazing selection of food and raffle prizes, so thanks to everyone who contributed and helped to put on a great show for our guests. Thanks also go to the “Tea Team” for food arrangements, Victor for setting up the room and Paul for driving the PC !
