New Location for Meetings

Thursday club meetings and Monday technical forums are now held at Woodheys Club, 299 Washway Road, Sale. M33 4EE . The Rugby Club is planning a major extension to the community space. While this is being carried out we would have to share the main room with the rest of the club, which is obviously unsatisfactory for our presentations. For the time being the Monday Technical Forums will continue to be held in the Shack at Metrovicks. http://woodheysclub.co.uk/index.php
