Work Parties 2024

Preliminary schedule

We agreed at our AGM to schedule weekly work parties for a few months. Here are some proposed dates through to the end of February. We really want a wide participation in these work parties – not just the Usual Suspects. Anyone can suggest a job for us to tackle. Anyone can be a work party leader.
