Coronavirus 12th March 2020

The trustees have taken the decision to close the club with immediate effect.

We consider that the age profile of the club is such that we are likely to have many members who are amongst the most at risk and we do not know how many of our members have underlying conditions which would enhance that risk.

We believe that we cannot take chances with the health and wellbeing of our members

This game of ours could be custom designed for spreading infection and it is difficult to see how we could safely continue.

As the situation develops we will update our web pages please watch this site for any further news.

Please ignore the calendar for now we may not have altered every entry
