Kitchen Refurbishment is booked to start on Monday 5th March. The kitchen will be out of action when necessary for the work. Teas and coffees will be available in the Green Room throughout the works.

There will be a work party on Sunday 4th March at 2pm to completely clear the kitchen in preparation.

The work is estimated to take a couple of weeks to complete. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
