Building Maintenance

Are you a Jack, Jill or Jim of all trades and know a thing or two about maintenance? Help us with the odd jobs that need tending to around the Pavilion and Work Yard.

Clean Team

Who ever said cleaning wasn’t fun?
Word on the street is the Clean Team has the most fun – after they’re done cleaning, that is.

Our Clean team bring the sparkle back to the Pavilion following events. Many hands make for light work and we are so grateful to our volunteers!
