It is a sad day for the Club but one we knew that was coming once the Local Plan was passed and published by the District Council, whose hands have also been tied by National Policies.

We, as a Club,  must work with the Planners to try to get the best out of a bad deal that will blight the Club’s aspect forever and try to remain positive. The Club will for its Membership and for those who use our fine facilities.
