Hi everyone,

There will be two work party weekends held at our Smiggins Lodge in preparation for the upcoming winter season. The dates are:

MAY 18 & 19

There is a lot of work to be done with a list of the following jobs below:

- Painting
- Carpet cleaning
- Insulation of kitchen floor
- Installation of waste/bin container
- Vegetation removal
- General cleaning of the Lodge 

We need approx. 15 attendees at each work party and are particularly keen to hear from any tradespeople and generally 'handy' people in the Club to join us.

Accommodation will be provided with details to be confirmed nearer to the date.

Could you please reply via email or phone of your ability to attend to DAVID BARTLEY who is co-ordinating the work parties for us, listing which date(s) you are available.
