  • New club website

    Our refreshed BGC website went live on 24th January 2023. There is still a bit of tidying up to do, and some new content to add. The site is now much easier to update, so hopefully we will keep it refreshed with new information. We hope that this new site will accurately reflect what the club has to offer. It has been created by a group of volunteer club members, it was only through the help of fellow club members, both on and off the committee, that we have been able to get the site up and running.
