Our Christmas working party assembled between Christmas and New Year to work off some turkey and pudding, and tackle jobs inside the hut and around the grounds. Steve Capel locked himself in the kitchen, to plumb in the new hand wash basin that we have purchased, as well as updating and improving all the water and waste pipework to the main sink unit.
Martin Bishop, Pete Goodey and Phil Wells set to work outside, with the main objective being the removal of the vast amount of leaves that covered everything. We managed to clear all the leaves off the grassed area and carpark, as well as to cut back all the brambles and vegetation around the fenceline. It took the 3 of us most of the day to complete this, but it will really help the grass to recover and grow in the spring now that it is no longer buried.
Many thanks to the 4 volunteers who did turn up, we could have tackled more if we had more helpers on the day. But don’t worry, if you weren’t able to help this time because of family commitments, there will be another working party in the spring and we would love to see you all then!
