A big 'THANK YOU' to our Woking Bee attendees

You have probably noticed a whole lot of shiny wire at the base of our Tennis Court fences. This was a big part of what we achieved at our Working Bee last Sunday. There is still a little bit more to do, but we have almost blocked up the holes where tennis balls were able to roll under the fence. We also repaired the fence on Court 7 (it was coming away at the top), and did quite a lot of tree and bush pruning of our large hedge on Court 6.
Our facilities are older and the maintenance is intensive. There are still many jobs left and we will have another working bee in the future. The reason is, we are trying to be conservative with our finances. The working bee meant we now don’t have to pay for many hours worth of a maintenance.

I would like to thank  the members who so generously gave up their time (most for the full 2½ hours):

Jim Parry, Martin Hill, Brett Hallam, Aaron Bolton, Terry Croft, Dan Whibley, Jamie, Bolic, Fotis Kantanis; along with Committee Deb, Ralph, Rohan, Andrew, Chris & Alisha.
Marina Woods & Sandy Joseph also helped for the first hour, and Nick Adams for the last hour after he arrived from a footy working fee.
