New Session Fees
The club are sorry to announce that we are going to have to increase the club session fees on Mondays and Fridays. They will rise by £1.00 as from 4th March, thus bringing the fees on all sessions into line, at £8.00. (Non-members £9.00.)
This is due to the Ice Centre increasing the charge to the club for hiring the ice pads. The club has not passed on increases for several years, although our charges have gone up each year.
Note that there will be no change for skate hire or off-ice training.
