Warwickshire County Council has now published the plan of Street Lighting improvements which are included in the new Traffic Calming Scheme.
All children must be members of Clifton Tenns Club, for children this is currently £15 per year, due on 1st April each year. Sue will charge children taking part a coaching fee of £6 per session for a six week course. So children wanting the coaching will pay Sue £15 + £36 and give Sue a Club Membership Form and a Coaching Registration Form.
Any child that joins the club as part of their family membership will not need to pay a separate £15 membership fee, but will be included in their annual family membership subscription. The Club membership subscription and the coaching fee should be paid to Sue in Cash, or if by cheque the payment to Sue may be made on a cheque to “Clifton upon Dunsmore Tennis Club”.
The coaching will be held on Monday afternoons from 5.00 pm to 6.00pm and will start on Monday 16th April. After half term, coaching will resume and there will be another six week course starting on Monday 4th June. If the weather looks doubtful Sue will make contact with parents and let them know on the day if the session is going to be re-arranged. If a session has to be postponed due to bad weather etc. Sue will re-arrange it for a later date.
The Club has junior rackets available for children to borrow for the coaching if they do not own their own.
It would help Sue to plan and run the coaching sessions if all forms and payments are given to her well before the six week course starts.
Sue’s contact details are:

MADE in the Middle, an exhibition of contemporary crafts, opens at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum this weekend.
Craftspace’s recurring, touring exhibition of contemporary craft and applied art from the Midlands visits the Little Elborow Street venue from Saturday (20 January).
The eighth in the series, Made in the Middle provides a great opportunity to purchase and commission work from some of the best makers in the Midlands.
Developed in partnership with Coventry’s Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, this Made in the Middle exhibition forms part of Craftspace’s 30th anniversary programme.
Featuring both recent graduates and makers with established reputations, visitors can explore a wealth of creativity, including ceramics, jewellery, metalwork and textiles.
Selected by an expert panel through open entry, 28 makers offer an insight into the skill, creativity and innovative practice within the Midlands.
Exhibitors include jeweller Dauvit Alexander, who creates striking jewellery from found materials and precious gemstones, and Aimee Bollu, who also takes inspiration from found items which she combines with beautiful, minimal ceramic vessels.
John Grayson uses traditional metal forming and enamel decorating processes to create whimsical, humorous and decorative metal objects, while Karina Thompson pushes the boundaries of digital embroidery.
Made in the Middle runs at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum from Saturday 20 January to Saturday 10 March.
A preview takes place from 6pm to 8pm on Friday (19 January), where visitors can meet some of the artists who have contributed works to the exhibition.
Cllr Heather Timms, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for growth and investment, said: “Rugby Art Gallery and Museum has a rich and varied programme for 2018 and we’re delighted to welcome Craftspace’s celebration of contemporary craft in the Midlands to start the year.”
