Labour Weekend Opening

Labour Weekend Opening It all seems a long time ago – so much has happened since. But the first official ‘presence’ of KBC, as many of you will know through participation, was over Labour Weekend. Saturday was a beautiful, light and sunny day, perfect for socialising at the Club.
