Working Party 5 May

The early May working party is always aimed at getting Aquarius SC looking its best for the annual Open Weekend.

The unusually hot weather this year meant that the grass really needed strimming and there was a lot of weeding to do. The tables, chairs and windows needed washing and the kitchen, changing rooms, toilets and shower needed cleaning.

Outside, the area under the new patio needed clearing. Earth, concrete and organic material was transferred up to the car park; a lot of very heavy paving slabs were neatly stacked and the timber, much of which was still required to finish our new patio, was stacked ready for use.

All the accumulated spider webs on the outside of the club were swept away.


Meanwhile four strimmers were in use cutting back the grass in the car park area, down the ramp and across the bund to the clubhouse. They then continued up the bank, around the boats to the far end.

Diana and Pete Carpenter supplied a great lunch including baked potatoes, meat sauce, salad and French bread followed by a cup of Pete's excellent coffee. Outstanding!

On the Commodores behalf I would like to thank the twenty members who turned up and really got stuck into a lot of hard work. Your efforts made an incredible difference to the place. It now looks smart, inviting and somewhere any of us should be proud to welcome potential new members to.
