The Club has risen again…..
After having been closed for almost fifteen months, during the height of the pandemic, and the subsequent Omicron Variant period, we are now gradually building the Club back up to being fully functioning again.
This has been a very difficult period for us all, and indeed we have all been effected in one way or another.
We would like to extend our sincerest condolences to everyone who lost a friend or loved one since the start of the pandemic, and we will do all in our power to ensure that the children who return to classes will have the safest, most positive, and fun filled experience possible.
Thank you for your interest in, or support for our Club, your interest or membership is something we cherish, and never take for granted.
Stay safe, and onwards and upwards for us all.
