Working parties are being held in October to cut down and clear vegetation on the island and lakeshore, and prepare for bonfire night.
Please bring along any suitable tools you have, loppers, brushcutters, chainsaws etc, and the appropriate gear - helmets, gloves, boots, warm clothes and of course your buoyancy aid.
Tea and coffee provided but remember to bring some lunch. You don't need to bring any tools if you don't have any - there will be a lot of wood to shift and we need all the helpers we can muster.

This year we're adding a Halloween theme to our annual bonfire night. There will still be the fantastic fireworks, bonfire, bar and locally sourced award winning pies and sausages, but we'll also be giving prizes for the best Halloween costumes.
Please note that this event is only open to our Members and Members guests, please feel free to invite your family and friends. Tickets are £4 per person, under 5s are free.
Please book and pay for your food and tickets by 30th October.
This three-day (and 2 evening) course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. No prior experience required.
The course includes close quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, man overboard recovery and collision regulations. It is an inland course and your certificate will be endorsed accordingly.
Please note that the 3rd day (30th November) is your assessment. You will be given a 1 hour slot to attend. You need to attend ALL sessions to gain your qualification.
Primarily offered for Instructors or those who will volunteer for safety boat cover on non-RYA* events.
*RYA events require a Safety Boat certificate too. This course is a pre-req for the safety boat course.
