More Baby Joy for Club members!

Congratulations to Sharon Greene and John Nicholson on the Birth of their Baby daughter Rihanna. Well Done. Rihanna was born on monday afternoon and I am told a fine baby she is weighing in at 9lbs 5oz.
Sorry John, although you are probably never going to forget that weight, we can't record these pounds here (-: !!!
But that's not all, this joyful event also makes Club member Christy Greene a Grandad again and our PRO David Greene is now also an uncle again. Of course Junior member Gary Nicholson is now also an uncle.
Congratulations to all of you and your families! Great news.
