It is that time of year again for us to have a work party. The objective is to prepare the facilities for the long winter ahead. We need to start a bit earlier due to the World Rugby Cup Final later on in the afternoon, so we would like an 8.30am start please. The more members we get the earlier we can finish. As usual those turning up early will be rewarded with a bacon roll to go with your first cuppa of the day cooked and served by the Durleigh Bake Off Team, and of course there will be a free lunch.
It’s an informal social event so come along and enjoy.
The task list is on the link below.
