Other news is that the club Wednesday evening club night is now being held at Beccehamian RFC while the new clubhouse at Norman Park is being built. Members can turn up for their usual run and be entertained with food and bar refreshments afterwards. Consideration is also being given for an away match against Jersey and Guernsey in April to get the track season off and running.
