Prior to the commencement of the Try Rugby Program we are having our annual cleaning bee on Saturday 21st January from 9am to 1pm. Our aim is to clean the following areas:

 

  • Canteen
  • Toilets
  • Change Rooms
  • Bar/Clubhouse
  • Grounds

 

We would love to get as many people along as possible. Even if you can only spend an hour or two, the more people we have, the more likely we will be to get everything done that we want to get done. We will have cleaning products, gurneys, whipper snippers etc ready to go, we just need some ready and willing people to use them.


Much appreciated,


The Wakehurst Ruby Club Committee
