HQ Spring Clean – Thank You

Spring Clean thank you-2






A huge thanks to everyone who came up to help at the annual 8th Cheam Spring Clean this weekend.
We cleared all the gutters,
Weeded and pruned overgrown plants,
Swept up leaves,
Painted all the new fences,
Vacuumed the hall top to bottom,
Cleared up all the old fencing into a skip (thanks Stuart),
Repainted the ladies toilet and the cloakroom.
Cleaned the BBQ and painted the canoe shed doors.

It was a fantastic achievement.
We genuinely couldn’t have done it without you!

Thank you
