Last week we posted that the internal work in our new clubhouse was continuing. A number of members have volunteered their time and got stuck in with the painting in the galley and main area. Chris C, Ian and Dave, Lucy and her brother and special thanks to Chris G who brought along an industrial paint sprayer. Over the weekend the remaining floor covering has been laid. Comments of "Superb", "It looks so much better"

In the coming week we have internal decorating taking place, the flooring being laid and some kitchen units being fitted in the galley area. The surrounding ground is quickly returning to meadow grass after the recent sunshine and rain. Thanks to Karen, Brian and John for strimming and mowing the front area. Doesn't our new clubhouse look just so right in its surroundings?

Whilst having taken our first tentative steps to return to sailing last weekend, Chris Cater continues to progress our New Clubhouse project where he is able. This week some new signage has arrived, and Chris has erected them. Huge thanks to Richard Shelley and everyone at Shelley Signs for their very generous donation, they look amazing.

Today would have been our annual open day to officially open our new clubhouse and entertain visitors to our sailing club. Sadly, it is not to be. To remind us all, here is a photo of our old clubhouse dressed in all her finery before the start of a busy day. Can't wait to see our new clubhouse in all her regalia when she has her official opening later in the year.

WE ARE NEARLY THERE Electricians, plumbers and joiners working away on the final jobs. The site security fencing has come down and for the first time you can see the building as it was intended to look.
