SPG Award Night 2 April 2022

SPG Award Night – 2nd April 2022

It has been brought to my attention that only 17 tickets have been purchased for our awards night the highlight of our season. When I asked everybody at our club night a few weeks ago there were indications of at least 30 ticket sales.

They are only £6 so get your tickets and support your club or there will be no point in having an awards night in the future.

Thank you
