The Trust AGM will be held on Saturday October 15th at 2pm in the Padgham Room in the Pavilion. All members welcome. Still time to nominate new Trustees. For more information about standing as a Trustee please ring the office and speak to Viv.
The Padgham Room is available for hire for small groups. Recently it has been used for small children’s parties; Pilates classes; and group meetings such as the Friends of Lightwoods Park. Please contact the office if you’d like to book for your event (0121 420 1061).
Roger Haslam, one of our green keepers, has retired after over 40 years’ service at Warley Woods. At a leaving meal for Roger, Viv Cole, the Trust Manager, gave him some stainless steel tools for his allotment—just to ensure that he keeps busy! We hope Roger will also have more time to play golf here at Warley. Thanks Roger for all your hard work over the years.
We have appointed Roger’s replacement, Kelvin Walker, who will be starting with us sometime in October. Kelvin has many years’ experience as a greenkeeper and we welcome him to Warley Woods.
