Committee meetings held every second Tuesday in the month except August
A work party usually takes place on the first full weekend of the month. Occasionally these are moved e.g for New Year, Easter.
Please come along and lend a hand as we can only keep fees low by everyone participating and hepling 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.
