URGENT - We need your help! Would all members please take note of and if possible help with the following:
There is a risk of very strong winds and flooding of the club and dinghy park in the coming 24-78 hours (Thursday 12 to Saturday 14 January 2017) and particularly on the high tide at lunchtime tomorrow (Fri) . To protect the club from risk of flooding and boats from risk of damage we need your urgent assistance as follows:
Please would all available members attend an emergency sandbagging working party tomorrow (Fri 13 Jan) at 09.30 to help us sandbag the club. Please bring your own shovel if you have one!
Would the owners of the six boats still left in the front dinghy park remove them as a matter of urgency (they should have been removed by 31 Dec under club rules anyway, but it is essential that they are now moved right away).
We recommend that anyone who has a boat stored in the back dinghy park and is able to move it to a safe storage area on higher ground does so.
If anyone is available for an hour at 6.30pm this evening (Thurs) please would you come to the club to help put the fridges and freezers up on blocks. If you have any suitable blocks and crates to assist with this please bring them with you.
Please would everyone keep an eye on this website and our Facebook and Twitter accounts for further updates.
As always, we're a club run by the members for the members so if we pull together we will be able to protect the club if the floods materialise, or at least minimise the damage. Don't forget that thanks to the 2013 floods we now have a very big flood damage excess on our policy so we must do everything we can to protect ourselves.
