Another Pontoon gate lock update

Another Pontoon gate lock update, how exciting!

After many attempts & much scratching of heads it hasn’t been possible to get the pontoon lock working robustly for all, it has now been declared defunct…..looks like it’d seen some abuse along the way.

For the time being it has been replaced with a combination padlock & chain.

BSC members wishing to use the pontoon are asked to contact either myself, Fiona Fraser, Di Collingbourne, Thomas Harrison, Clive Marfleet for the combination.

Thank you for your patience & support.

Pontoon gate lock update

Pontoon gate lock update: as of today the way in which to operate the lock on the pontoon gate has changed slightly. 

The code remains the same, but the lock will now latch open after use. To lock the gate simply enter the code and turn the handle the opposite way (a little more force maybe required to lock, but unlocking is easier)

BSC Mini Summer work Party, Sunday 15th July

Just a friendly reminder 🙂

BSC Mini Summer work Party, Sunday 15th July, 9:30 – 12.00 (ish)

Hi All, we’re looking to tackle a few outsidey type jobs around the club and on the pontoon whilst the weathers good, so if you could lend a hand for a couple of hours it’d be great to see you.

The 2 big jobs we’d like to tackle are the preparation / painting of the decking area, and installation of cages around piles on the pontoon, but there will also be a number of smaller jobs to suit all skill levels.

Materials provided, along with tea, coffee & bacon rolls, please bring appropriate clothing, gloves & general tools for your area of expertise.

Look forward to seeing you.

PS: as this clashes with the Pond day we’re not expecting to see any pond parents, enjoy your day!
