Work parties

During the off-season members are encouraged to contribute to the ongoing maintenance and cleaning of the lodge. In order for the lodged to be maintained to a standard that is acceptable to our members, members are encouraged to visit during the ‘green season’ and carry out jobs that are suitable to their own skill level. Importantly, members involvement helps the AWSC budget stretch further. 

 

The lodge manager will be able to assign jobs according to the needs at the time.

Members that cannot do a work party will be charged a fee that will accompanying the annual sub fees for that year.
