Clubhouse Update 21/10/14

Unfortunately we have had some bad news about the clubhouse.
The builder has left the site after some difficulties and progress has stalled.
Council is now looking to engage another builder to finish the project.
We will keep you informed about a finish date but we might not be celebrating
