All change at Devonport Services Angling Association!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on July 25, 2019 - 6:04pm

To this effect the Association is updating due to the shrinking of HM Forces and the fact that at this time more Ex-serving than serving members are controlling the Association which should have been the other way around. Currently the Ex-serving members do not have any voting rights and this needed to be changed.
