The committee wishes to thank those members who have given donations already towards the refurbishment of the club.  The refurbishment is going ahead but any donations will help us to buy more and/or better things for us to have for the benefit of all members.  Donations can be made in cash, by cheque or bank transfer.  Unwanted foreign currency notes will also be gratefully received.  We have this opportunity to make the club a much nicer place for everyone, let's make the most of it.
