PROSHOP REVAMP BEGINS!! As you may have noticed John Jacobs and the team have started the plans to completely revamp the Proshop. The guys are planning on creating a more modern, open and brighter environment to the shop. The shop will increase in size and when completed will look unrecognisable.
The Proshop overhaul is taking place one section at a time, so is completely functional and will remain open during the entire refit period. Please bear with us during this time; it really will be worth the wait!! We will keep you updated with our progress, why not pop in and see the development for yourself.
