COVID-19 UPDATE 19/05/2020

All of our activities are cancelled and we remain closed.  We are making preparations for a phased re-opening as soon as it is safe and sensible to do so.  As soon as we are notified by our insurers and sport governing bodies, and are confident that it is ok to do so, we look forward to welcoming you back.  You can find further details on our blog.

Our beautiful coastline isn’t going anywhere and will be here waiting for you when we have made it through this, as will we.

Be safe,

Ben and the team
