A work party usually takes place on the first full weekend of the month. Occasionally these are moved e.g for New Year, Easter, the Rally.
NB The May 2019 work weekend has been moved to avoid the Bank Holiday and will now take place on the 27/28th April.
Due to the Boat Gathering, the October work weekend will take place on 28/29th September,
Please come along and lend a hand as we can only keep fees low by everyone participating and helping out with chores. A jobs list is sent by email to all SPBC recipients a few days before the event.
Work usually starts about 10am. Tea and coffee is provided FOC and on Saturday, a lunch is often provided at a nominal charge.
There is nearly always a social get-together on the Saturday evening of the work party. This may be an organised event or a Free'n'Easy night where folk just gather for a drink and a natter.
We hope you can join us at the next work party weekend.
Committee meetings are held in the clubhouse on the Sunday of the work party at 2pm. Observers are welcome. An agenda for the meeting and the unratified minutes from the previous meeting are available to download from the website. (Downloads - Meetings).

There will be no Committee Meeting in June, July or August 2019 (unless urgent business arises)! The 'October' meeting will be September 29th (as the following weekend is the SPBC Boat Gathering)
