A huge thank you to all those who helped with a working bee 3 weeks ago where 70 plus sheets of roofing was painted - first two coats of three - and stored on the ground floor of the new Pavilion. It was great how people helped from the Exercise class, the groups that use the courts for hockey, some people from the Yoga class, people who just use the facilities at Kaipaki and a few cricketers made up the volunteers.
Many thanks to all who attended as these days are great fun and one gets to know more people involved at Kaipaki and understand some of their issues and ideas. Great stuff people and we will need more help in the not too distant future.
Special thanks to wee Charlie Baker who was in charge of wiping the edges of the sheets of iron minimising the spillage.
More on Pavilion progress soon.
We also had a very friendly Scotsman staying at Don Baron’s place for a while and he come to exercise classes and in return was a handyman around Kaipaki and fixed the boarding around the courts and a number of other jobs were completed. Also thanks to Don Baron who always cuts the frontage by the courts when he does his own frontage without even having to be asked.
The Scoreboard is now virtually completed and awaiting the summer, the outfield will be sprayed and over sown this coming week and with the grass starting to grow again things are happening.
Some of the Kaipaki women are looking at tidying up the Kitchen and taking stock of what we have and what we need.
Hope you all have survived the winter, spring is not far away and then cricket and more activity – hopefully tennis can start!”.
Something like that perhaps?
