Recruitment update

Due to the ongoing restrictions still in place the OIC and XO have decided to leave the waiting list place until further notice.  The XO is trying his best to keep everyone up to date as much as possible.

If you would like to join our waiting list please either send and email to southleicesterscc@gmail.com or fill in the online enquiry form that can be found on this page.
