Working Party – Saturday 22 April

To further improve the clubhouse and grounds and prepare for the Open Day on 20th May, there is another working party this Saturday, 22nd April.
Paul is looking for volunteers to come along and help and bring useful tools such as a strimmer, jet wash, brushes and rakes. There is also a radiator to re-fix back on the wall in the bar area, so plumbing spanners and tools would be useful.
The working party team is meeting at the clubhouse from 10.00 am. Please bring a packed lunch. Many thanks!!
