Boathouse Works - updated

19th April 2016


Dear All,

The contractor has had to alter the programme of work [to the floor] slightly, and there will now be no access to the Clubhouse on these dates:

Wednesday 20th (evening),

Friday 22nd (all day),

Monday 25th (all day)

Wednesday 27th (all day).

Thank you!

Dear Cygnet,

Work will start at 8:00am this Tuesday 19th April to replace the floor in the main room of the Clubhouse, subject to approval at the SGM on Monday evening.

We need your help TOMORROW Sunday 17th from 10:00 am to clear the main Clubroom ready for the works to start - please let me know if you can join a small working party.

Please read the below, as it will impact on your use of the Club over the next 3 weeks.

For the duration of the works, the outside keysafe will contain the key to the Shed. The remaining keys (including the Boatshop and Clubhouse keys) will be hanging on the hooks inside the Shed.

On the evenings of Wednesday 20th, Friday 22nd and Tuesday 26th April there will be no access at all to the Clubhouse, to allow the dpm, screed and topscreed to dry. Please do not try to get round this as it will cause damage to the work. At all other times (and particularly when the builders are on site between 8:00am and 4pm) please minimise access through the work area and only walk on the protective boarding. (Ladies you can access the changing room through the side escape door once one person has gone through and opened it from the inside).

The kitchen will be taken out, and so there will be no drinking water in the clubhouse. We will provide bottled water in the shed. The upstairs boat washing tap provides mains water which should also be ok to drink.

Please do not obstruct access for builder's vehicles between the Shed and the back of the Club when parking in the car park during working hours.

Thank you everybody, in advance, for your patience and forbearance. When it is all over there will be a Club social to christen the new floor and kitchen - aiming for the weekend 7th/8th May, details tbc.
