Training once the clocks have changed
keyautotrade new logoPlease note new training arrangements at Waterside do not come into force until the clocks change at the end of October. We are in the process of overhauling the portable lights in preparation for the changes. Nearer the time, a comprehensive grid of all our teams training slots will be published on this website and hard copies in the clubhouse. If any of the younger teams wish to use the MUGA, it has to be booked and paid for as we don’t actually control it … so please let me know. DH.
