Fire Assembly Point

Club users should be aware that if the fire alarm sounds they should leave the building and go to the Assembly Point signed at the bottom right-hand corner (as you leave) of the car park.  

Bowling Club Parking

Additional parking is available now the bowling season is over. The Goldenacre signs have been removed from spaces 7-13, please do not park in any of their other spaces. Occasionally the signs will go back up when the bowling club hosts a function, otherwise bridge club members are free to use those 7 parking spaces.
