Over the recess we will be comencing refurbishment work in the ante-room and the toilet area. 

Any brethren who feel they have time to spare and wish to help out with the work, should come to the Lodge on Monday 31st May at 7:30pm where we will be discussing the scope and timetable of work.

Many hands make lighter work, so I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the recess!

Once again, thank you all for your hard work and hope you come back in September fully refreshed.
