We have just been advised that the implementation date for Brookes Car Park charges has been postponed. It was due to be Monday (16th) – but all we have now been told is that there will be a delay before being introduced due to teething problems. Our Club Chair is in contact with Brookes and has asked for updates. Full details of the proposed charges and how to avoid them may be found here.
As the pitch is being used by OUHC Men’s Blues to play an invitational XI.

Entrance is £5 – let your captain or Sean Cox know and give her/him your fiver to reserve your place. If you are not going to see your captain – then just bring your fiver on the night. Any queries to Sean Cox – Chief Social Animal
