- From club member Stef Pasco – ‘I have just passed the third part of my sports and remedial course and now and I am looking for at least 6 people (case studies) who would like 6 consecutive massages over the next 12-20 weeks for a discounted rate of £130 (total) or £25 each massage. Each massage is 1hr – 1hr 15min and and can be home visits.’ Please contact Stef on Stephanie@pasco.me or via the Facebook page if you would like to take up this offer.
- We usually do the awards night after training on a Monday night – this year we are trialling having this event on a Saturday night at Westbury-on-Trym village hall. Start time to be confirmed but provisionally 6.30pm. We are doing this so that it is not so late for some of younger club members, so we don’t have to rush the awards as there are always such fantastic achievements we want to properly celebrate them and to make it a social evening for everyone. There will be refreshments, a disco and bar. We really hope you come along and support this event. So please get the date in your diary and further ticket information will follow.
