A BIG BIG Thanks to all who attended to help out with Various cutting tools, Strimmers, shovels, chainsaws on a very Hot Weekend, to do much needed Maintenance on the outside of our Range.

Both the Clay Area and 50mete have been Cleared of "Obstructions". We now have a Dedicated section for both the 25 and 50m Point, and all Safety areas which where Obstructed have now been cleared.

Big Thanks to Non Member Chris for his help with the Mini Digger, made Laying New Sand and moving Bushes a lot easier
