Vote of thanks!

This weekend over 20 members joined the two morning work parties, to help clear the mass of bramble and brush that was threatening to take over our paths and car parks. Some people came on both days, so a particular thank-you goes to them, and to the brownie bakers, and to Tony & Dan for coordinating the task force.

Timber in the Shop

Are you building a raised bed? Do you need to repair your shed? Do you have plans for a fruit cage?

The EWAA Shop may have just the timber you’re looking for. The following items are currently in stock:

  • Kick board – 3.6 metres long
  • Feather edge – 2.4 metres long
  • Deck bearers – 6″ X 2″
  • Fruit cage posts – 3″ X 3″
  • Fruit cage rails – 3″ X 2″

No More Paper Towel

Because the used hand towels in the toilet block regularly spill out of the waste container and onto the floor, causing an unhygienic nuisance, the Committee has decided not to refill the paper towel dispenser beside the basin from now on.

Thank you for your understanding.
