Lake Clean Up Day, 10/3/12

Our first scheduled lake and clubhouse clean up day was an eventful one, with close to a skip bin load of rubbish consisting of microwaves, car tyres, crutches, piping, scooters, bikes, wiring, bricks and other treats being removed from the lake.

A very big thank you for a great job performed by the following members showing the Birkenhead club spirit of getting in and getting your hands dirty is once again alive. To those members who missed it, next drinks are on you 🙂
