Home internationals

ewflagsThe Veteran Home Internationals will be held on 3 Oct at Llynnoedd Teifi (Teifi Pools, mid-Wales). Congratulations to HH members on their selection: Siân Mitchell (W35, Wales), Alison Harding (W55, England) and Janet Rosen (W60, England). We hope they all do well. I’m sure Siân will forgive most of the club if they hope for an English overall victory.
