It is with regret that we announce Tim Woodland has decided to step down from his role as Trustee. Over the past 18 months Tim has been a committed member of the board and, most recently, he has had a special focus on leading the work to develop the new website. This is soon to be launched.
 
Tim will continue to be active in the club and the board would like to thank him for all his hard work.

Community

Winchester Community Games 2015

Winchester Sports Stadium, Bar End, Sunday 27 September, 12pm - 4pm

 
The Winchester Community Games 2015 is taking place on 27 September and we have a Penguins station to man at the event, so are looking for willing volunteers to help give out information about the club and run our activities. The event runs 12-4pm and if you are able to give any time to help at this then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
 
The Winchester Community Games is a free sports and arts festival with clubs from across Winchester combining to run activities and stalls to provide something for everyone. It will be a great event to help raise our profile in the community and attract more  people to join our club. We hope you will be able to make it down to the day even if you're not able to volunteer any time.
