Sunday 23rd April – Dojo clean-up after Kendo training (we all have to help keep it clean)

As we get closer to these and other events, notifications will be sent out.  That said, please keep the calendar close by and update your own personal calendar to ensure you don’t miss any of the important events!


There will be an updated hardcopy of the calendar on the notice board as always and of course it’ll be on the club’s website.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


Cheers and take care.
