Volunteers needed! Help with the Wimbledon Common Rangers Open Day Sunday 10th September

You may recall that for the last few years we have organised the car park marshaling for the Rangers Open Day.  We have been asked if we can again assist from 0930 to 1700. This is a great way to give something back to the people that look after the Common and also is great for Ranger-Windmiler relations!   We still need another 10 or so volunteers - if you can please support your club and the Common we run on so much.  And it counts towards the Windmilers ballot for the London marathon.
