We are delighted that donations to the Presidents Appeal mean that funds are now available to continue developing croquet. John Solomon suggested this would be a good time for the CA to invite delegates from clubs and Federations to discuss new initiatives:

Council members want to hear your views on these and any other policy issues.

The CA will take them into account when compiling its Strategic Development Plan.

CA committee members will be present to advise clubs about, in particular -
Recruitment and retention of members
Tax breaks for clubs
Child protection policies
