Have you got a couple of hours to spare? As the season beckons, we need a couple of people to help with small jobs around the grounds and greens. Interested? Contact Allen for more details.

Save YOUR money by keeping the snooker room sliding door closed; otherwise it disrupts the thermostats throughout the club. Also please ensure that radiators are turned down when you leave the short mat rink.

The Club is indebted to our sponsors and we will be highlighting each of them in our weekly newsletter over the coming weeks. If you know of anyone who would like to sponsor the club and reap mutual benefits please let me know. This week we highlight:
