“Our development programme is slowly coming into shape and although it is slow but it is a sure process, being able to provide such a workshop is such an honour and privilege. The sky is the limit and we aim to have more workshops as planned during our sporting year in order to fulfill our objectives as a committee as per our development plans.”
