Thank you so much to the Pirates Wine Circle and in particular Elaine Clingman who organises the tastings each month for the FANTASTIC new chairs in the Main Bar.  We have at last been able to rid ourselves of the wrought iron (collapsing) chairs and replaced them with great red and navy hard plastic chairs. They look fantastic, are comfortable and give the Main Bar a real facelift. The generosity of the Wine Club is so very much appreciated by the Club.  THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU
