Working Bee

Spring Clean & Working Bee

On the 28th October we had a Spring Clean & Working Bee at P&DARCS. We had a great turnout and a lot of items were ticked off the to do list, so a huge thank you to those who turned up to help.

Some of the big jobs we ticked off were:

  • Spring cleaning the clubhouse & toilets
  • Sweeping out of sheds
  • Pressure washing down paths around club
  • Raising sprinkler heads on runways
  • filling in holes on east runway extension area
  • Filling in potholes in driveway
  • Begin construction of fuel storage shed
  • Filling in old spoon strains alongside driveway to improve mowing conditions
  • lots of whipper snipper work
  • + lots of other smaller jobs

As you can see, we achieved a great deal, so thanks everyone for your help. It's only with a lot of effort that we keep P&DARCS looking as good as it does.
