Silent Key News Update:

We are very sorry to announce the very sad loss of two Club Members this month.

The first is John Wall G3 CBT  who sadly passed on 11th November.

The second is Ian McGowan G8 OFZ  he passed on 16th November after a very short illness and was admitted to the Shrewsbury Hospital. Ian was a very valued committee member, and thus will be hard to replace.

Our thoughts go out to the families.

Visitors to the club should be aware that the Telepost Club carpark has limited space available and  this gets filled very quickly so visitors will usually need to park by the Abbey, or in Abbey Foregate carpark.
