Bodgett & Son Go Back To Work

After a short Spring break Bodgett & Son resumed work at Aquarius on Wednesday 23 June.

The extension has now been fitted out with hanging facilities, shelving and a new cupboard to be used to store crockery, non perishable foodstuffs and kitchen equipment.

At the last committee meeting funding was also approved to complete the work in the gents changing room. This is to include replacing a section of flooring, dry lining the northeast corner walls and providing seating around two of the walls.

This will take the form of 15" metal lockers with seating above. The lockers are provided with keys and will be available later in the year to 'rent' on an annual basis. The intention being to provide somewhere secure for member’s private possessions while they are on the water. Two lockers will also be provided in the Ladies changing room. Hopefully this work shouldn't take too long.

In parallel work is also ongoing updating our external lighting both around the club, along the waterfront and in the car park areas. Internally Pete Carpenter has proposed the installation of a Cappuccino machine behind the bar. This idea was met with enthusiasm and will go ahead as soon as space is made available.

Apart from routine maintenance that will just about complete this years planned improvements. Future work will almost certainly include rebuilding the Bosun's store and refurbishment of the club's shower area.
