Working Bees

working beeEach year we arrange a couple of working bees in order to tidy up the hall, clean and repair equipment and get through as many of the outstanding maintenance jobs we can. The next working bee will be held on a date to be advised following relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions.  Working Bees usually begin at 8.00am and continue to early afternoon, come along any time you can make it. There will be refreshments throughout the day and food for those who work over lunchtime.

Please come and lend a hand - even if you can only manage an hour or two it will be great to have your support.

Check the whiteboard inside the hall for the list of jobs that we will aim to complete. Feel free to put your name down against any which you would like to help with - especially if you have appropriate skills or tools!

Below is an ongoing maintenance list we aim to get done - this list is constantly changing so please check back often to see what is still outstanding. Note: the list is not in any order of priority - when a new job needs to be done it is added. If you notice a job that you have the skillset for, pop by for an hour or two!........or let us know before at
