Jetty Work Parties Starting Easter Monday

April 16, 2019

A big thank you to the 28 members who attended the club on Sunday to help clear the old wooden jetty. The photo shows the final part of the old wooden jetty being removed on Monday ready to be moved and disassembled. The finishing period starts Easter Monday 22nd April until Saturday 27th April with work parties arranged around the tides. After the rest of the old wooden jetty has been cleared there will be 3 teams working on installing decking, new toe-rails and re-connecting the old dog-leg. We need 18 people (6 per team) each day to complete the work. If we get the numbers then we anticipate finishing in 3 days.
