Winter measures
As we are experiencing pleasant weather at the moment there is now no need to turn off the water supply to the Clubhouse. Thank you for all your efforts over the winter months to prevent burst pipes.

There were a couple of reports last week of the courts not being padlocked. A reminder to all members to please ensure that if you are last to leave you make sure the padlock is on.

Best wishes,
