ANOTHER EXCITING OPPORTUNITY
Further to the flood of offers to help with washing tea towels from the bar and galley (yes, not a single person came forward), we are now also looking for some assistance with cleaning the club and changing rooms. Currently we unfortunately find ourselves without a cleaner and so we must apologise if the club is looking a little unkempt. We would therefore be over the moon if anyone could spare an hour or 2 to help put a mop and vacuum cleaner around. Please email email@example.com if you can help.
LAST SHOUT FOR .
Wetsuits and sailing gear. There are still a few wetsuits and boots and tops beautifully displayed upstairs in the clubhouse. Please feel free to go and have a look and take anything that fits and leave a small donation in the clubhouse letter box if you find anything suitable.
