VERY SUCCESSFUL WORKING BEE 
A big thanks to the 21 members who turned up last Saturday for the Hard Stand clean up working bee - many hands made light work to fill two big skips and thus we were able to enjoy a breakfast/brunch BBQ instead of a lunch BBQ. Congrats to Suzie Frood who won the Great Northern lucky draw.
MINORS IN THE LICENSED PREMISES
Families are very welcome to enjoy our open air premises. Please note all minors under the age of 18 are to be adequately supervised by the parents/carers and cannot be running or screaming in the bar area.  Bare feet is a big no-no to meet licensing standards and protect little feet from potential glass shards.
