Women’s Changing Room Refurb

Sport England are doing a site visit at 11am on Tuesday 5th November, following the Club’s grant bid for a contribution to the refurbishment of the Ladies changing room.

They would like to meet with some female club members during the visit to discuss the proposal further.  We invite any women members to join Dave and Chris Silver for the site visit.  Please let us know if you will be available to attend either by calling the office (01788 811153) or by email

The proposal includes partitioning to create a family/child changing area, as well as improved ventilation, heating, flooring, changing benches and redecoration.

Please remember to use easyfundraising when you do your Christmas shopping this year.
