Forthcoming Events

Time & Venue changes

Over the next couple of weeks there will be some time & venue changes due to seasonal events at Sketty Primary School preventing our use of the hall. There are also a couple of permanent changes due to low numbers for those particular sessions. Please see details to the left. You can also view and download a revised 2017 timetable by clicking 'Training Times' above.

Apologies for any inconvenience these changes cause and thank you, as always, for your cooperation.
