The Club has had a purpose built BBQ for many years now, which is used occasional during the weekends during the summer months (weather permitting) for Fun days, BBQ days, as well as member personal family use. Upon application to the committee our Local Members, who live within local terraced housing with little / no garden space, like the opportunity to bring the extended family out and use the BBQ and Clubs facilities. The use is normally free to club members, however the member is responsible for the fuel, food, equipment & utensils and serving plates and cutlery, most importantly the safety of their family. The Club also requests that the area be left clean and tidy (please note all drinks & beverages must be purchased via the bar).
