Covid-19 Updates

We are delighted to see the return of activities and resumption of Indoor dining for those who hold vaccination certs. We hope you will all play your role in keeping each other safe while we get back to enjoying the use of our club. Please familiarise yourself with the protection measures in place as we resume activities –
