Gloves / Tools / brushes / bags/ buckets /sponges etc etc are by outdoor seating or in the room adjacent to the wet bar – where we have a DIY cupboard! Please don’t wait to be asked – grab a broom and go!!! We also have the two petrol strimmers on site. We were kindly donated a small pressure washer, if anyone would like to experiment on cleaning the outdoor seating (if possible today without drenching all our visitors!!)
