Netball Training Wednesday 28th of March – Cancelled tomorrow due to games at Bells.
Astro-Turf – Closure – Due to a disgraceful amount of litter on the astro-turf after lunchtime today, the astro-turf will be closed for the rest of the week. The respect shown for this facility, and the environment in general, is very poor and does not seem to be improving – there are bins/black bags provided for your rubbish so please use them! If things do not improve, the astro-turf will eventually need to be closed every break and lunchtime.
