Sheree’s 2017 Sporting Highlights

I’ve been a bit slow off the mark here largely because I’ve been out enjoying myself in the snow! As usual there were many lowlights in 2017 – no need to depress ourselves by listing them – but I’ve always been a glass half full… Continue Reading “Sheree’s 2017 Sporting Highlights”
