Maintenance mornings

SATURDAY 6th JULY, 28th SEPTMEBER 2024, 9am-12 noon
To help keep running costs of the club down we welcome all volunteers. We all 'muck in' and you can meet old and new friends. Whether you're a keen or a Professional Bodger we have small jobs for everyone, such as weeding, painting and hedge trimming (to name but a few) in order to keep the Clubhouse and Grounds in a good state of repair. If you are able to come along and help please could you contact David Paine. Please bring with you your own work gloves.  We are particularly interested in anyone who has a tow bar as one of the jobs will be emptying the trailer at the back of the clubhouse to the nearest bottle bank. Some lunch and a drink will be provided to all volunteers.
