Working Party 29 July and Club Improvement Update

With the river still in flood and sailing not possible the 29th was used as an impromptu working party day.

We worked along the upper fence line removing brambles and trimming the trees. A surprising amount of material was removed and taken up to the back of the car area for composting.

The wild flowers which at the time covered the bank were left untouched. Thanks to everybody who helped, it was much appreciated.

The handrail alongside the patio steps has now been fitted and varnished. All the modified garage doors have been fitted below the patio effectively enclosing the space under the decking.

The low wall at the back of the patio has still to be finished to provide additional seating similar to that on the top patio.

The enclosed area under the patio will be used for storage. Some of the equipment (e.g. the safety boat gear and the racing marker buoys) will be transferred so that they are adjacent to the boats rather than having to be brought along the water front every time from their present location.

Another, external, job that needs to be done before more heavy rain will be to complete the concrete culvert that runs along behind the clubhouse and channels rainwater away. The water damage in the club foyer was partly caused because this culvert only reaches halfway across the back of the club.

Outstanding jobs include re-marking out the car park bays, galley refurbishment and replacement of the lounge riverside windows.
