The Hall's 100 club has normally run from March until December each year. Last year we decided to suspend the club due to the complications of contacting members under the Covid restrictions. We will review the situation from time to time and let people know when we decide to re start. In normal times the club is a significant help towards your Hall's running costs as well as providing a little boost for the winners so we hope when the time comes as many of you as possible will support us.
