CLUBHOUSE REFURBISHMENT UPDATE

Posted: January 13, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

I wanted to thank everyone for their patience during the RSCAC clubhouse refurbishment. Particular thanks to Bunny Kyd for all the time he has invested in planning and managing this improvement to our clubhouse facilities.

Our new facilities are nearly ready (just awaiting drains connection via the council). I would also particularly like to thank the kind person who has sponsored our interim toilet facility, our porta loo, this has been greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, Alex Buchanan, committee chair
