South Pennine Boat Club

What's On


Starts: 10am

WORK PARTIES HAVE NOW RESUMED. covid measures are still in place in the clubhouse and members are asked to comply with requests in this regard to keep everyone safe.

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. Dates are published in the Handspike magazine.

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.
