Centenary Hut repair

This is an undertaking by the MBC and Vertical Endeavour. We extend the invitation to any interested members to have some fun DIY time in the Berg.  The first step was to measure the window replacements required; to clean out broken window panes and putty; and to take the waste materials out of the Berg.  Warwick Shaw led a hike/work party to Centenary Hut on the weekend 28/29 May 2016.  Please contact Warwick if you would like to be involved in this worthwhile endeavour:
