It has been so good to see members coming out to play again in their bubbles.

Thank you to the committee who have worked hard and quickly to ensure we could open for our members under level 3.  Under Level 2 our guidelines for play allow more freedom however there are procedures to follow as outlined below.  Our Coaches are now able to work again which is great news; please visit the Meredith Brothers Facebook page or website for more information:
