Working Weekend during the 9th December 2000.

During this work day we concentrated on more window repairs and building the new V.I.P lounge floor in TC1.

One group worked on the windows and one on the flooring.

Two new members Alan and Graham came to there first work day, thanks guys for all your help.

Due to a corroded lock, we were forced to drill out the lock to gain access to the TC1 toilet.

The lock was a standard Yale, this we are going to replace with a new lock.
