KIAMA CWA thanked three gentlemen who rolled up their sleeves and took action after years of heavy rains made the driveway to their Shoalhaven Street clubrooms unusable.

The ladies hosted an afternoon tea for John Lennon, Michael Foye and John Unwin and presented them with a cake as thanks for the remedial work.

"The driveway was out for ages and John Unwin put up barriers to stop people going down the driveway, which was clearly dangerous," president Yvonne Newmarch said.

"We got a quote for doing the work, which was around $2500, which we couldn't afford,"

"Council had a look at the job and put in some drainage before Michael Foye and John Lennon did most of the hard work, moving the gravel and soil that had washed to the end of the driveway."

Mr Foye said he couldn't have done it without his close friend Mr Lennon.

But the job clearly had to be done.

"Some of the elderly people who use the hall need to be able to get their cars close to the hall and couldn't. John is an absolute legend and is always willing to roll up his sleeves for a good cause and this one certainly was," Mr Foye said.

"Council then came in with materials which allowed us the seal the road."
