Happy New Year to all club members!
There will be a few changes in the new year. Gone are the regular fixed monthly dates for Red Fridays and the Play Group. Instead there will be a quarterly calendar of events published in the newsletter and posted on the notice board. Also weekly email reminders sent out. What you can be certain of is that there will be an event of some kind taking place in the club every Friday night.So please come on down as often as you can and make them a success.

The good news—demand for the club is increasing.
People want to book it for all sorts of events, both on-going and one-off.
The bad news– we’re having to turn people away because there aren’t enough volunteers to staff them all.
Can you help? Volunteering to staff the bar once a month would be a huge help and would take some
pressure off the few who now do it.
Please think about it.
