Cottage News

The next main event at the cottage will be the pig roast to be held on the Whitsun Bank Holiday (29th May) organised by Chris Grimmet as previously. If possible round up a few friends to invite along as break-even seems to be about 50 people.

The Whitsun Bank Holiday will be preceded by a week at the cottage for those members who wish to help with the annual cottage renovation/upgrade and also with another attempt to enter Igam Ogam. Apart from the usual repainting, the main project will be to start construction of an additional bog/shower. It will probably only be possible to do the base this year as the cement will have to set before the rest can be done. We will also need to set up the pig roasting site and collect some more wood.

PLEASE NOTE THAT A PROPOSAL TO INCREASE THE MEMBERS RATE TO £1.50 PER NIGHT HAS BEEN APPROVED AT THE AGM.

ITEMS WANTED: Spin dryer, microwave, water boiler, wood (2" x 4"), coal, pillow cases, 2 x 2'6" mattresses, 6" stainless steel insulated flue sections.

OTHER: The driveway at the side of the cottage has got very churned up during the wet weather and the gate also gets left open letting the sheep in. It will be kept locked experimentally until the late spring. The key will be on the workshop key loop if you have a lot of loading to do - cars appear to be OK now in the car park.
