A little TLC for Volunteer

Trusty old Volunteer did us proud last year, unfortunately she could do with a little TLC (prep & paint) before going back in the water.

So if you fancy getting you hands dirty, didn’t have enough at the work party the week before, and can spare a little time, we’d love to see you Saturday / tomorrow from about 10…

We will have on site catering courtesy of Andy & Nick Hutcheon, bacon roll for breakfast and French stick Pizza for lunch I believe, but you’ll need to pre-order (PM me / Andy) so as not to be disappointed.

Many thanks!!

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.

James V

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