Good Morning Pirates Members and Friends
Wow the Club was busy this last weekend. Thank you to all the members who came down to support the Club. It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying our great club. Look forward to seeing many of you again this weekend.
The club is needing a new barman so we have decided to promote Lesley to barman and we will hiring a new cleaner/bar tender.
Please can all our members be patient and support Lesley while he is in training. We are very pleased to be able to give Lesley this opportunity and he is very excited about his new position. Lesley will officially become a full-time barman from the beginning of June
