The club meets every Thursday from September through to June each year and for quite a number it is the one day in the week they look forward to the most. 

                       

We don't qualify for grants from any source so our sole aim is to self finance the costs

raising activities from within our own membership, plus donations from various groups;

individuals and other organisations.

 

The activities of the club which is solely run by volunteers some of whom have had a
