Club calls for clean-up army
The Port Hedland Turf Club needs the community's help to put the track and clubrooms in order before the start of the race season next month.
This Saturday, a busy bee will be held at the club from 8am until a list of jobs is completed.
Jobs that need doing include cleaning gardens, ridding the area of rubbish - including a shopping trolley that has ended up on the course - and helping to sort through equipment that is stored in shipping containers at the site.
Turf club vice-president Tony Barron said a new committee had been established and a number of changes would be introduced to ticketing before the first race meet on May 16.
He encouraged anyone with a few hours to spare to come down on the weekend with any rakes, shovels and battery-operated power tools they had to help the new committee by cleaning up the facilities.
A free barbecue will be provided at lunchtime and there will be cold drinks for all volunteers.
