Work parties return to St James Park
This coming Saturday and Sunday sees the long awaited comeback of the work party at St James Park.
To prepare SJP for the 2017/18 football season, the club is hosting a weekend of ‘scrape, paint, wash and scrub’ within the stadium on Saturday July 1, and Sunday July 2.
Supporters are invited to come along and join stadium manager Mark Latham to help spruce up the stadium in readiness for next season.
This will ensure that it is ready to accept supporters, both home and away, and will make sure they are able to enjoy the pleasant surroundings of our family orientated Club throughout their visit.
If you are able to please bring any of the following, please do: wire brushes, paint brushes, rubber gloves, dust sheets, buckets, brooms, dustpan and brush and cloths.
You’re guaranteed a warm welcome, and refreshments will be provided.
Speaking about the event, Mark Latham said: “This is a job that has needed doing for quite some time, but we have never had the manpower to take it on. We will be delighted to welcome plenty of volunteers to St James Park to make a difference for their club
“Every extra pair of hands will make a big difference. As a supporter-owned club it's important we get the fans involved.”
Date: 1st and 2nd July 2017
Times: 10:00am – 16:00 each day
Refreshments will be provided
If you would like to attend, please notify stadium manager Mark Latham in advance via email on: firstname.lastname@example.org, or turn up on either day and ask for Mark.
