14 May Working Party

This was the second work party of the year. Its purpose was to prepare the club for the annual open weekend on 21/22 May. Some thirty members turned up to undertake a variety of tasks including clubhouse cleaning, shower re-pointing, strimming, weeding, repairing the driveway and installing new tyre fend-offs upstream of the new ramp.


Diana Carpenter and Pat Irving supplied the tea and coffee and an excellent lunch of chicken, new potatoes and sweet corn followed by a couple of different flavoured pavlovas. The workers included Gordon & Joan Courtney, Mike Baker, Nigel Knowles, Tony Hopkins, John Neale, Bryan Clements, Stuart Schafer, Charles Dennis, Dave Jennings, Laurie Bridges, George Bray, Liz Archer, Ken Ayres, John Tompkins, Graham Thompson, Pete Carpenter and David Griggs. Apologies if I missed anyone and many thanks to everybody for a great days work. The old club is looking quite dapper and ready for the open weekend.
