Working Party - 6 October

Clearing the drainage channel behind the clubhouseOn 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 paved trailer parkThe 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.
