We are holding a work party on Saturday 30 October from 10.30am to address a range of outstanding maintenance jobs suitable for all shapes and sizes of member. In particular we will be cutting back and removing the bushes and vegetation that are threatening to overwhelm many of the berths.

The intent is to tidy up and prepare for the winter. Below are some of the jobs that need to be done- but feel free to tackle others you are aware of.

AQSC Work Party Saturday 30 October 2021

The day will end with one of my favourite scratch social events - ranks of hungry members enjoying a natter over a simple meal prepared by Deborah Lea – socially distanced of course.

So please let us know of your intention to come (email grahammarkthompson@yahoo.com, phone 07587594303) , so that Deborah buys in enough ingredients to  generate the traditional minor scrummage for seconds, come down from 10.30am  with work clothes, gloves etc. and put your name against suitable items in Nigel's list of jobs, and work up a healthy appetite.
