Announcing the June online newsletter
The June edition of the online newsletter is now available. In this issue, we welcome our new General Manager, Al Heathcote and Pete Bridge as the new Chairman. There is also a rowing update from Mark Banks, plus Susie Dear and Mark Schofield give us an insight into how the offer of Members talking with current athletes has been for them.

Digby Wine Tasting
Keep the Fizz Flowing!
Sir Kenelm Digby invented the wine bottle and was instrumental in keeping the wine flowing around the world. This has inspired us to create a series of remote tasting events to keep fizz lovers across the country entertained at home!
You can become a part of our communal, social events, right from your living room! Trevor or Alex will host the tasting and escort you through the wines and Digby Experience and you will also be able to engage with other attendees, should you require some social interaction! It’s easy to take part using Zoom.
A bottle of each wine will be delivered in the pack, as well as optional Digby Bottle Stoppers, if you need some to keep your bottles fresh over the weekend. Please click on the link below to learn more or sign up for an event.
