Many of the ideas, thoughts and comments from the survey are now being implemented, with examples of the recent working bee and BBQ day, return of the tech talks, the scheduling of new social activities such as Sea Shanty Night coming up soon, as well as finalisation of the Foc'sle as a members only area. The Squadron Committee encourages your feedback to make sure the club remains a relevant and welcoming club for all of its members.
