Our club is currently closed due to Covid 19.
During this time our club has obtained a NSW Government grant via the community building partnership (2019).
This grant was obtained for flooring to allow us to replace the existing floor. 
Work will commence shortly to prepare the complex for the new flooring to be laid, which should arrive late June. 
We hope to have the complex open again, with new flooring, in mid July. 
Check back for updates on our flooring. 
We look forward to seeing you then.

      1. It’s only a small work social club usually 12-16 attendees at events. Saturday lunch would be preferable within the next few weeks a bbq lunch if possible and few beers over 2-3 hours would be good
