Autumn 2018 Work Party 27th-28th October 2018
The Autumn Work Party is on the 27th & 28th October. Again we have a very long list of jobs . Some small, some large to suit all abilities. If you don’t feel up to anything too strenuous, not on the list is probably the most important job of all, Tea Making will need a volunteer.
There is a BBQ planned for both days.
Hopefully we will see as many of you there as possible.
Update. If you have tools that may be useful, please bring them with you.
