CHANGING ROOMS AT STEYNE PARK
Volunteers support and help is sought for clearing the changing rooms, retiling the shower rooms and painting all walls and ceilings of the interior. It is envisaged that trade works will commence in the New Year. If you would like to help with this refurbishment project please contact the Parish Clerk. We are hoping that the project will be complete in time for the next cricket season mid April.
