Mr Tunbridge said the club is always on the lookout for “good people of any age, from any background” to join the club or help with club activities. Information can be found on the Club’s website or Facebook or by calling into the Medowie Community Markets on the second Saturday of each month, outside the Bull n Bush Hotel.
