Working Bee 2015

By March 5, 2015Club, Juniors, Mens, Womens

It’s time for the annual Waverley Hockey Club Working Bee. There’s plenty of maintenance work that needs to be done around the club and, as they say, many hands make light work.

Date: Saturday 14th March 2015
Time: 8:30am until done, around 1:00pm

There will be an Intraclub Men’s match, starting at 8:00am, so come down early to watch then help out with some odd jobs. The boys will be done by 9:30am and will be helping out after their game.

Please look at the list of jobs below and bring any tools that you think might be helpful. It may be that they aren’t required but it’s always best to have too many tools, rather than not enough. Some of the more important gear is:

  • Drop sheets
  • Paint rollers
  • Brooms
  • Hedge trimmers
  • Wheel barrow
  • Shovels
  • Gloves and other personal protection
  • Drill with hex bits
