We are now preparing for our own Annual Awards evening on the 16th November at the Walls Club. Lots of video presentations celebrating another successful year, entertainment and a basket meal for £6.

The event will also see the conclusion of our grand raffle, with over 35 companies having donated prizes totaling over £2K, it should be an exciting draw. The proceeds will go towards furnishing the new facility.

Great social evening for the whole family!
