    Message from Club Secretary
    Dear all,
    1. Splash Bash - just a final plea for any donations to the raffle at next week's evening event. Please contact Jacqui Wallace direct to arrange
    2. Durham Lumiere Festival - may those attending training sessions next Thursday (12th November) & Friday (13th November) be mindful of the Lumiere Festival (http://www.lumiere-festival.com/durham-2015/). Traffic throughout the centre of Durham will be extremely heavy, therefore please take this into account when planning arrival times for your training session.
    Many thanks,
