At the recent Management meeting it was felt that due to the increase in Covid cases it would be irresponsible for the club to hold the presentation evening on Thursday 14th April. We have a responsibility to keep members safe.

This decision was not taken lightly but the committee felt it was the right thing to do.
All league winners and runners up will receive their prizes at the beginning of next season.
Stay safe and healthy.
