Are you looking for somewhere for your club to meet?

The KGV has a club room available free of charge to residents. Contact the Manager in the first instance to discuss possibilities. The planned activities will need to be consistent with the Trust’s Charity Scheme . We will do our best to accommodate local groups and clubs where the aims of the club are consistent with the activities of the charity.
