Compton Harriers AGM 2014 The Club's AGM will take place on the evening of Thursday 11th December at 20:00 (after a short Club run). The AGM will now be held in the back room of The Four Points pub (not The Pickled Pig as previously advertised), so we can also have a meal. All members are encouraged to attend. Please could the club officers prepare a short report for presentation at the meeting. Please let Martin know ASAP: if there is any item you would like to be included on the agenda; if you are a current Committee member who wishes to resign your position; if you wish to / are willing to stand for a post on the Committee.

Compton Harriers Christmas Meal 2014 Martin and Lucy have booked a table at The White Hart (Hampstead Norreys) for the evening of Saturday 20th December. If you (and your partner) would like to come, please let Martin or Lucy know your menu choices ASAP (see ). At the present time we have not been asked for a deposit.
