Christmas Party Tickets Here!

We'll be having our annual Christmas Party at the Clubhouse again this year, on Saturday December 9th from 7:30pm.  Tickets are just a fiver, which is frankly the best deal you'll get this festive season!  Canapes and Christmas-themed decor provided; please bring your own drinks.  

Tickets are now available here - also available on the door, but please do book in advance if you can so we've got some idea of numbers!
