WHO ARE OUR CLUB CAPTAINS?
We held our elections for club captain in May, with great excitement as our young members cast their votes. It was a very close election but once the votes had all been counted and recounted the result was confirmed. Our club captains for 2017-18 are Katie and Aaron, pictured below. Congratulations to them - we know they will do a fine job. Huge thanks also to our outgoing (and first ever) elected club captains, Amy and Daniel who've been great ambassadors for the club and excellent captains and role models.
