As enough people did not attend the AGM on Wednesday last there was no committee formed for 2013.     There is one last meeting on Thursday 18th September, 2013 at 8 p.m. in the Downs N.S. and if there is no support from parents, there will be NO COMMUNITY GAMES in the Downs area.    We urge you not to let this happen.  If you cannot attend meeting, please leave your name in The Shop with Liz.
