NEW POLICY

THURSDAY PLAY - Five minutes before the start of the session (12.45) the Director will ring the bell and all participants must be seated at the table where they intend to play. At this point, a pair at a table without an opposing pair, a player without a partner or whose partner is expected to be late needs to notify the Director. Late arrivals after 12.50 will only be allowed to play at the Director's discretion. Once the movement has been entered on the computer and the play is set for the session, latecomers will not be able to play. This ruling will be strictly enforced.

AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS WE ARE COMPILING A LIST OF PROFESSIONALS AND TRADES PEOPLE. IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS LIST PLEASE WRITE THEM ON THE LIST ON THE NOTICEBOARD. MEMBERS' RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY.

CAR PARKING
CAR PARKING

Only limited car parking can be allowed on the small Larkhill Centre car park due to the requirements for access for emergency vehicles.  I would urge members to use the large free public car park adjacent to the centre which from January 2016 has a 3 hour time limit with no return within the hour. There are some spaces for blue badge holders near to the path leading to the centre.  There are shortly to be parking restrictions on Thorley Lane itself but there is another free car park in the village behind the library which sometimes has spaces.
