Working Party - Ty Powdwr

Philippa Maye

Working Party Meet, Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th February ‘19


Ask not what can your club do for you but what you can do for your club!


Do you enjoy visiting the hut and its beautiful environs? Do you like to see the hut spick and span? Do you think it could be spicker and spanner? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then would you like to join me and others helping to give our fab hut some TLC? 

It’s probably a bit to early in the year to be a genuine 'spring clean’ but that is basically what this, the first working party of the year, will be about. There are no onerous tasks, here’s a taster of what we’ll be doing: 

Painting - the women’s toilet cubicles and some of the outside of the windows 

Sealing tiles in the women’s shower 

Replacing batteries in the appropriate appliances and testing alarms

There will be some scrambling about on the loft identifying and photographing where there is render loss

Changing pillow cases in the dorms

Strimming along the path and out front

Clearing drains and ditches along the path

Tidying and re-ordering the storeroom

Washing pots, pans and utensils in the kitchen

And cleaning throughout

So, nothing too taxing there! In return for all your efforts lunch will be provided on the Saturday, your stay at the hut is free stay and I’ll bake a cake. I’ll also bring some games for the evening and then Sunday is your own to wander, climb and explore as you please. Are you interested? Please let me know so I can provide enough cake! Many hands make light work and the more the merrier!
