We know it’s a bit early to be thinking about what you’ll be eating on September 14th, but we’d like you to consider donating a plate of sweet or savoury goodies for the congress. The array of delicacies at our past congresses has set a high bar - we have a reputation to uphold! If you’re unable to deliver something on the day, your ever-enthusiastic committee members will be glad to collect something from you.

Closer to the date, there will be a sign-up sheet at Henley and you can always contact us at

June Newsletter is attached ... A great read!!!


Please be aware that parking at the preschool is illegal. There is a sign at the top of their driveway restricting that area for their use only. They need ALL of their allocated spaces at pick-up time. There is plenty of parking down below.

On Friday, 20 June, the preschool will be holding a Grandparents' Day and their cars will be spilling into the upper carpark. This area is open to public parking and not restricted in any way for our use. For Friday players, the lower carpark will be opened for you on that day.
