The Club has reopened in compliance with current Government guidelines, but for limited events that will be advertised here. Pre-booking will be essential.

On Tues 22 September the Clubhouse reopened successfully for a trial live Club Night. Club Nights will still be held virtually every Tuesday even if there is a live event at the Club, and we will be linking both.  Please visit 'At the Club' for more information.
