Club update 16th Feb
Cheval committee would like to pass on their respects to the Scarff family on the recent passing of Arthur Scarff and also to the Goodwin family on the recent passing of Tony Goodwin. Both Arthur and Tony would have been well known to many Cheval members and both gentlemen were very supportive of Cheval over many years. May they rest in peace.
