Works Days.

The Club facilities are undergoing some improvements with additional accommodation being added  in the coming weeks but preparation work is needed in advance particularly  around the Clubrooms.

Field drainage and fencing are also being improved but it takes people to do these wee jobs.  If everybody did a little then we could do a lot.  Works Days are normally on a Saturday but work will be underway some evenings also as and when people are available.  Give Frank a ring or just drop in for an hour on Saturday.
