On Saturday there was very good support for the working party. Around 23 members
achieved a great deal and were rewarded by an excellent lunch and tea prepared by
Joan Bray and helpers. Fortunately the weather was ideal for all the outside work.
Following the very heavy rain this summer there was dampness in the foyer. The source
of water ingress was identified as rain overflowing the “damp proof” course behind
the clubhouse. A channel was dug out.and it was lined with paving stones to give
much better drainage for water running off the roof. Nigel continued work on Sunday
lining it with cement instead of sailing.
The trailer park is a problem with stinging nettles and this has been reduced by
laying paving stone over a big area of the entrance; this was very hard heavy work.
Another large area was covered with carpet and some surplus decking.
Apart from these major tasks there was strimming of the banks, car park, trailer
park, and boat berths.
