PARKING ON OUR MONDAY AND THURSDAY SESSIONS

Unfortunately parking has become a problem, especially at our Monday afternoon session at Chalfont Community Centre.  We have therefore, again, rented the Scout Car Park which gives us plenty of extra space.  This can be reached by going into the entrance (over the little bridge) and turning right towards the Tennis Club.  The Scouts' building is the second building along and the gates to the car park will be open.  PLEASE, IF YOU ARE FIT AND ABLE, USE THIS SPACE on a Monday and Thursday to allow others who visit the centre for other classes, to park their cars (some are elderley and disabled).  Your help would be greatly appreciated.
