Working Bee

Just a quick reminder that there is a working bee on this Sunday the 9th at our hall at 10 AM. Due to the exceptional effort by the group on Wednesday night, all the lines have been stripped.

The work that is required now, is to mop the floor. Prior to this, the hall will need to be vacuumed. Please bring vacuum cleaners and extension cords. You may also need an extra vacuum cleaner bag to collect the dust.

The other items required are a bucket and mop.

Overall it’s a very simple exercise, vacuum the floor and mop it.

Working Bee

The OBA are having a working be on starting at 10:00 am, Sunday 9th we are looking for a big squad of people to help. We will finish pulling up the lines and also clean the floor so it be painted on Monday. Lunch will be provided if we go past 12:00pm.

Please bring:

  • Paint scrapers (razor type best)
