Work parties Jan / Feb 18

The club relies on members to volunteer in all areas, this helps keeps fees down along with developing a community spirit.

We have agreed the University can install a (rat proof) container to protect their recent investment in equipment. As such we need to demolish a container and move items from several containers. We are due to demolish the mower and storage container, which is the least secure and not in good condition.

We have set a date of 27th January 9 am until “finish” – Keith is coming down to do bacon cobs

Phase 1 – Empty Container
Sort into “waste” / disposal via skip  & materials / equipment for moving to larger Aluminium container behind old workshop.
