Commemorative Plaques in the Clubhouse:
We are delighted to launch our fundraising plaque initiative for the clubhouse. This is a plaque that you can have personalied with names dedicated to your family or loved ones maybe with a short message. The plaques will be on display together in the hall upstairs in the clubhouse. It is a nice gesture to remember those close to you while at the same time helping to fund the clubhouse.
