Assistance with canteen on muster days
Members are reminded that over the course of the year each family is required to contribute two shifts in the canteen on muster days, in addition to your working bee hours. Shifts will be signed off by the canteen convenors (to confirm that you turned up for your nominated shift) and can then be entered in the database against your required hours.
To make it easy for members to meet this obligation, we have come up with an online roster which you can access using the link below. Simply nominate your two shifts, preferably on different muster days, pop it in your diary and make sure you turn up on the day. if you are unable to make your nominated shift, please organise a replacement and change the online roster accordingly.
Thank you to all our new and returning members for your assistance with the canteen, and a particular thank you to our regular bakers - your efforts are much appreciated. We look forward to sharing a shift with you! Margaret, Shannon and Irene.

There is now a new system for the lights on the top & bottom flat. The two light polls have had an on / off switch installed. The lights will be available for use from 5.30pm - 9pm Monday - Saturday. If you wish to use the light simply switch the light to on, when you are finished with the lights please turn the switch to off. If you forget to turn the switch to off they will still automatically turn off at 9pm however to prevent them from turning on (and wasting power) at 5.30pm the next day please turn the lights off. The lights in the stable block are only to be used by pushing the black button on the post. Please do not lift the lid on the box to turn the lights on that way. The black button will give 20 minutes light and you can push it again for another 20 minutes if needed.
