Car Parking - Update 3 April 2018

Due to the continuing  heavy rains, the overflow car park remains very boggy and a reminder that only owners of 4x4 vehicles are advised to use it, even then as a last resort.

Please make every effort to share vehicles for the time being, especially on Wednesday and Monday evenings.

Subject to approval from South Oxfordshire council, the bridge club committee has decided to lay down a hard surface in the overflow, but the job will have to wait until the ground is dry enough to work on.  In the meantime thank you for cooperation.
