We were hoping to book our annual bowling trip before Christmas (we missed it last year) but due to changes in booking policies we won't be able to arrange it in time. We are proposing to go in the New Year on 17th January. We will have a list at KSBC so you can add your names if you would like to come. We will have to ask that you pay in advance. The price will be £4 per person, club will cover any additional cost and get chips for all lanes. The list will be open for 3 weeks so until the 20th December so that it can be booked in time. Payment will be non refundable unless we can't get booked for the date above.

Club Closure

Hi all Club will not run on 27th December. There will be a ride or two over the festive period, more details will be posted in due course.
