Working Party on 27 November 2004

Late November is not, I suppose, the best time to expect folks to come down to the club and spend a day generally clearing up … but 23 hardy souls did just that, many bringing their own tools, and fairly ripped through the work programme.

We kicked off at 11.00am although a lot of people had, I suspect, arrived a lot earlier.

While Team 1 worked behind the clubhouse clearing guttering and removing Holly tree stumps Team 2 pitched into clearing weeds from the water front ramp.

Meanwhile Team 3 set about clearing up the trailer park.

Team 4 worked on clearing and cutting up tree cuttings from behind the new extension and along the bank while Team 5 painted the concrete pilings along the front of the club.

Team 6 meanwhile, mowed and strimmed every blade of grass they could get at.

Inside Team 7 kept the tea and coffee coming and at lunchtime whizzed out to get fish and chips all round. Someone even found time to get the generator working!

By 3:30pm most things where done and everybody pitched in to clear up the site. What a difference, the old club looks so good I think we will have to up the joining fee!!!

Thank you all so much! I can't tell you how it means to be able to call on that sort of support … and for the record my happy band of maniacs were:-

Joan, Gordon & David Courtney, Stuart Schafer, Rodger Wheeler, John Tomkins, Pat Halling, Liz Archer, Ron Mundon, Richard Cannon, Dave Jennings, Laurie Bridges, Anne & Leo Bond, Pete Carpenter, Graham Thompson, George Bray, Yvette & David Marshall, Anjan Basu, Arthur Sykes, Mark Benning and me Over Easy.

My sincere apologies if I've missed anybody but sometimes my memory just straight lets me down.
