We have two or three of these events every year aimed at staying on top of the hundred
and one jobs that need doing at Aquarius. Generally clearing up the water front was
high on the agenda this time around. So, while Bodgit & Son got on with starting
the construction of a covered area on the quarterdeck and Rodger checked out a fault
on the main gate intercom, those members who had kindly given up their Saturday got
stuck into clearing weeds, brambles and cutting grass.
The day was sunny and warm and while the work was going on Diana and her team kept
tea and coffee on the brew and set about preparing a sausage casserole lunch for
the workers, while at the same time putting all our crocks and cutlery through the
dish washer in preparation for the 'Casino Royale' night. Some twenty-five members
sat down to lunch in quite high spirits. The weather obviously agreed with them.
Work then resumed and some people were still going strong at 6:00pm. A great effort
The Committee's grateful thanks go to everybody who turned out on Saturday. We know
it's not glamorous or exciting but it is essential to stay on top of these mundane
jobs, especially just before the end of the season and the onset of winter. Thanks
