Angela and I were back on duty today so after a late breakfast we wandered over to the office to see Phillip & Julia. We had a quick chat and a cup of coffee before we began our cleaning duties.
Cleaning times are standard on all of the CCC sites and that is from 10:30am until 12:00pm. We begin by putting out the obligatory closed for cleaning and slippery when wet floor signs (H&S first).
The daily routine includes cleaning the following;
- Dishwashing Room
- Laundry Room
- Disabled Room
- Chemical Disposal Point (CDP)
After all of the above the bins are emptied, floors are mopped and all for the minimum wage!
The list above is not exhaustive as on certain days there are additional jobs; for example Thursday is shower curtain washing day.
We stopped for lunch at 12:00pm after which we went back over to the office to see what else needed doing.
As the site is not too busy at the moment and most of the campers were out Angela seized the opportunity to practice on ‘Tommy’. He is a Kubota G2160 with power steering ride on lawn mower!
As a general rule we do not use ‘Tommy’ for more than an hour at a time as we have to think of the campers and not disturb them too much. I know how I would feel if I was on a campsite and the mower was going up and down all day.
Angela now feels confident that she is able to mow in a straight line, around the base of trees and manoeuvre in tricky, tight spots.
All she needs to do next is practice reversing with a trailer attached………………….then the fun will begin! I will let you know how she gets on in due course.
Angela has grasped working in the office and using the Club’s computer system for booking new arrivals in and booking people out when they leave.
