Club Shop
Since our committee are out selling tickets for our Club Fundraiser we will be changing the opening times of the club shop until the end of the draw.  The club shop will now be open on Sunday mornings from 11am – 12noon sharp.  We know it’s only the start of October but we have decided to open our Christmas club to allow people to reserve & pay off on items over the next few months.  This also ensures that you will get the size that you need.  Once the stock is gone we will be unable to get extra sizes in before Christmas.  We have new stock coming in for Christmas (see pictures attached).  If you are interested in purchasing these goods please call into the club shop during opening hours with a deposit and we can reserve these for you.
