Thursday Work Party

One of Hollowell"s great resources is the THURSDAY WORK PARTY (aka The Wrinkles) Feeling Grumpy? Then its time to join the Thursday work party. We meet on ...err THURSDAYS! Don"t confuse this with Saturday Work Parties, that is for all members (grumpy or not) and that meets on SATURDAYS! (See the calendar for details)

Retired or not working?

Then get yourself down to Hollowell - it will improve your physical and mental health!

The benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to the club, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer.

What do they do for us?

THURSDAY WORK PARTIES - Come along and join a thoroughly practical group of people who get together on pretty much every Thursday of the year between 10am to 4pm. Bringing with them a vast depth of knowledge predominantly from sailing but also from engineering, catering, plumbing, business and many other backgrounds they maintain and repair every aspect of Hollowell Sailing Club's inner workings. Tending to the club fleet of hire and training craft, constructing concrete pontoons, delving into crevices, guttering and drains there seems to be no limit to their capacity. Needless to say this is also an enjoyable day to which all members are warmly welcomed whether retired 'wrinkles' or otherwise! Enjoy complimentary refreshments.( Yes - FREE BEER!)

SATURDAY WORK PARTIES - all members are asked to support the occasional Saturday work parties when some of the larger and essential maintenance tasks can be achieved with many more hands to make light work. The dates are published on our annual programme and are key dates to get in the diary. A complimentary lunch and refreshments for all those who lend a hand.
