WORKING BEE 2016

Thanks to everyone who took part in the working bees last year,

 

 

 

 

  2014 Working Bee

some of the working bee team

The last working bee for this financial year was held on the 25th May.Again we had a great response with a good number of volunteers turning up.One member even jumped the gun and started mowing the grass before anyone got there. A bi-monthly working bee seems to be the way to go.These working bees are necessary to keep our flying field clean and tidy as well as to have a good place to enjoy our hobby.

 

Before

This year we have had a great response to these gatherings with members turning up with overflowing enthusiasm and appropriate tools for different tasks to be completed.I'm sure this will continue into the next year as well. On behalf of the committee and myself I like to thank all those who attended the working bees this year with such enthusiasm.Great job guys and thanks again.

 2013 Working Bee

Another working bee was held at the end of October with a good number of members turning 
up once again for the jobs on hand.

 


 

 

Dennis got the soil and gravel delivered during the week so it was up to us to make good use of them.

 

 

Graham offered his trailer to move the soil 
on to the runways which made it a lot easier 
then using wheelbarrows
.

The gravel was spread around the barbecue area while whipper snipper's and a mower

were taking care of the pit and surrounding grass area which had grown considerably since the last working bee.

 

 

 

 

David Humphrys brought some white paint with him and painted the runway markers and taxiing lines.

We finished in just over 2 hours and a free soft drink was offered at the end as a thank you gesture for a job well done.
