Covid-19 Update – 21st March 2020

As you will be aware, all schools closed on Friday until further notice and so School Letting Solutions have rightly cancelled hiring facilities. So, sadly we are having to close the club until further notice. They are talking of schools not opening again till the end of summer. We will be back as soon as it is possible and safe to do so. When we do it will be an amazing session and we will have to all celebrate afterwards in the pub! We will email you when we are on the other side of this sad situation.

Meanwhile, keep your loved ones and yourselves safe, look out for those who need help and only buy what you need. We will get through this if we all pull together.

See you all on the other side!
