A big thank you to all our supporters and members for helping out on our Working Bee on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th February. The Richmond club has been repainted inside, bathrooms cleaned and repainted, the exterior water blasted, guttering repaired and excess furniture removed. A massive effort by all, ably led by Tala Tuisila and our favourite painter Paul Mansson, so thank you. The next short-term goals are a carpet upgrade, polished concrete floors and a new presentation stage. Watch this space! View Photo Gallery here.
The old windows have now been replaced with a sliding door and a new windows, a skylight is installed opposite the kitchen (all in the aid of light-filled clubrooms) and new shower gas heaters have been installed, at a total cost of over $18,000.
These improvements were all paid for from grants received (thank you Liz Ah Kuoi and Graeme Atmore) from North South Trust Limited. North South Trust owns poker machines located at Grey Lynn Tavern (Grant and Ellie Tullet) and the Trust encourages us to support this local venue. Let’s all support those who support us.
