Fun with radios!

School Gates
If the school gates are closed when you arrive, please phone 0739 651 1281 and we will come and let you in. The school often closes the gates in the evening when there are no members of staff on duty. GARES has no control over this but please do not let this stop you from coming along. We really do look forward to seeing you.
This telephone number is only available on Monday evenings, when the club meets at the school, from 7pm to 9.30pm clock time.
