Named hat order »


Just to let you all know I have taken on the responsibility of ordering named hats for the club.

There is a minimum order for hats and this is often the reason for the delay in you receiving named hats.

This will most likely be the only order placed this year, due to this factor.

The hats available can be viewed on the website - if you would like to place an order please email, please include the name you would like printed on the hat with your order.

We have a stock of both the un named hats, these can also be ordered as above.

I will be placing the order on 21st September 2018, if you require a hat please ensure your request and payment is received before this date.

If you have previously ordered and paid you do not need to do anything.

Kind regards

Jo Smith
