October Work Party

We had a fabulous weekend of work parties, a good turn out and we all had great fun clearing willow and maintaining some old flow deflectors and as usual lots of pasties, coffee and cake in the breaks…

The club AGM and dinner is looking rather exciting, better get your names down rather soon, and as for the raffle prizes, amazing……

Regards to all
Keeper
