We have a full yellow road salt bin outside the hall. We also have 3 shovels, 3 fluorescent tabards and 3 sets of gloves.Ted has put one shovel outside with the bin and the other 2 and the tabards and gloves inside the hall porch on the left hand side. There is also a board on the wall in the porch where the equipment hangs; the remaining hooks can be used for extra coat storage. Training is being provided for the Madag volunteers.
Flooding - Work on the flood prevention drainage scheme has been completed, but there are still issues and DGHP has been contacted regarding these.
The sanding and varnishing of the hall floor has been completed, with excellent results, thanks to Garvis Kelly, Ted Norfolk and Paul Carrigan who worked extremely hard to bring it to its revived condition. The bowling boards have been removed from the hall, which has been cleaned and dusted and the curtains washed, thanks to Elna Kelly.
Work will be starting soon on the exterior of the hall which has become shabby over the past few years.
Remember: fundraising ideas are always welcome.
