SBOC club chair Niall Reynolds comments:

I have been amazed what a difference having someone dedicated to this has made to the profile of the sport/club in our area and the number of contacts and relationships she is now building with Local Authorities and other partners. People are really starting to notice..

We will be continuing to work on all the things identified in the report and be ready for a hopefully even more success in year 2.

As you can see there is a LOT going on! You can read more in Kerina's 6-month report here.
