​ Captain's Blog 14 June 2019 Benvenuto, Another week, another blog. How long can we put up with this rubbish? Probably not too much longer but for anyone interested enough to be reading or still taking anything in, the remarkable news is that there only remain eleven weeks of my captaincy before Big G takes over.

​ Captain's Blog 6 June 2019 BLOG ALERT – Slightly low key Hi to All Members, If last week was rapid, this week has been decidedly odd for me, maybe it's been the same for you?
