In particular, huge congratulations to Elsie Llewellyn and Jess Corby who both made it on to the GB squads for the European Cadet and Junior Championships to be held in Bulgaria in March 2017.

Behind the scenes, the coaching team continues to develop fencing in schools around Perthshire, with over 500 kids introduced to the sport this year.  And our relentlessly hard-working and supportive Board of Trustees and volunteers continue to work hard to make team Ossian one of the most successful fencing clubs in the UK.  And to our supporters, donors and sponsors, how grateful we continue to be and how humbled we are by your generosity and kindness.

2017 is going to be all about development and expansion.  The young fencers are growing, the membership is growing and therefore the team effort and the space needs to grow.  Lots to be done and your contributions are most welcome.
