Or if you would like them posted, please let us know.
If you wish to rent a space in the compound there are a few upright spaces available for Â£125.00 per year. Please contact the admin office for more details.

Quiz Night – 18th April, 7pm
The Quiz with a difference……
Come along and experience a new exciting quiz.
There are prizes for each round and a card game where winner takes all (donâ€™t worry you do not have to remember anything).
Each player will be given 4 gaming sheets, you can play individually or confer with your team but donâ€™t forget one wrong answer means you all lose (Â£1.00 entry fee each person).
This should be a really fun different quiz night, so why not come along with some friends and relatives and have a few laughs.
We look forward to seeing you on the 18th April.
