RAFA Spitfire Club & Branch welcomes you

Our club is now finished with the majority of the refurbishment. If you want a sneak preview before you are able to visit again after the lockdown, head over to HERE. We are extremely proud of our new look club and thank all involved, especially our main contractors SBC.

STOP PRESS: May we extend a warm welcome to all our new members that have transferred from the Newton Aycliffe Branch. We look forward to meeting you in our newly refurbished Club when COVID restrictions are eased and we can open again.

PLEASE NOTE: There are special safety measures in place to protect both Members and staff for when we re- open. Hopefully, this will be some time in December. This will result in a reduced number being allowed into the club and restricted seating arrangements will be in place. Also we ask that everyone who attends please stick by the safety rules, observe them closely, please follow the instructions of staff if asked to do so in order that we all may stay safe whilst again being able to enjoy our brand new and improved facilities. We look forward to seeing you soon.
