Happy New Year !

Hi everyone,

We hope you had a great Christmas, are wishing you all a fantastic New Year and want to remind you that we start back at practice on January 7th 2020.

This should give us all enough time to rest any aching joints, have had our fill of the Christmas excesses and made new resolutions to continue / return to our practice.

We look forward to seeing you all in 2020 !

Cheers Steve.
