The next step of the process is to invite ALL MEMBERS to a Members' Information Evening in the Clubhouse on Tuesday 6 February at 7pm.

As well as seeking members' views the CGI team will present a summary of the Survey out comes and themes and also deliver their assessment of Killymoon's governance and organisational arrangements.
