Membership Renewal Update
28 Clubs have renewed their membership this year and we should like to know what would entice others back.
In order for the DSC to progress, we desperately need volunteers to come forward for the positions of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. As you should know we haven't had a Treasurer since August 2017, when John Cox retired and financial affairs have been undertaken by the Secretary, Fred Crawford.
Report from the AGM/Open Meeting:
