The priority is for our club members, guests and visitors as we have a full fixture list every year. We also have a growing social membership and are keen to expand income from third party functions.

Quiz nights, barbeques and fish suppers prove popular and the club is increasingly playing host to numerous private bookings such as birthday parties, christenings, corporate functions and other milestone special occasions.
