CLUB CLEAN UP DAY
A few members have put their names forward for the clean up day on Saturday 5th August 2017. Many thanks to those who have volunteered. There is a lot to be done and we do need more volunteers please although I appreciate it will clash with holidays for some. Please let me know if you are able to attend by dropping me an email at email@example.com. If you can please also bring buckets , sponges , strimmers etc..if you have them. Bacon rolls and Coffees/teas will be provided.
We are looking to kick off from 9.30am through to lunchtime say 1.30pm latest. There will be other projects during the rest of the summer as well to give the club a face lift and if you can’t make the 5th but are be able to support other projects then watch this space. Let’s put the pride back in to our facilities whilst we remain at Beeston Hyrne.
