Sunday 2nd April was designated as a day for all members to come along and help out with maintenance tasks instead of the usual paddling session. By coincidence, CRT had asked everyone to keep off the river that weekend anyway, due to the unusually strong flow.
Buoyancy aids and paddles were tidied up, boats washed and many repaired. Gutters were cleaned, weeds pulled, a pile of leaves and an ugly old sofa removed.
We had a very productive day- thanks to the many helpers that showed up. The photos show only some of you - cleaning what felt like thousands of boats!
And indoors we had the changing rooms and toilets cleaned, main club room hoovered, kitchen tidied and a thorough review of the content in the loft performed.
Amazing work and a huge thank you to all that contributed !

Those who paddle independently may like to know that there are opportunities to take part in litter-picks on the upper Stort every other Sunday with the "Save our Stort" group - see https://www.facebook.com/groups/saveourstort/ for more details.
