February Newsletter

Hi everyone,

My name is Kelly Borrows and I am the new Social and Publicity Secretary for the Cotswold Area Civil Service Sports Association (CACSSA).

I am looking forward to developing the social side of the Association further, and am keen to seek any views or suggestions that you may have on the type of activities, events or tasters days you wish CACSSA to consider in the future. This is the first in a new series of Newsletters which I’m planning to send out monthly. If you have any suggestions, or wish to be involved further with the social committee, please could you email Kelly.Borrows@cacssa.co.uk.
