Saturday 2nd July 2016 – Part 1 The “A+” Team

The usual good works  were proceeding at CRC this morning. The Billy Goat was in action clearing the pathways and the mower was in action cutting the grass. A reduced Stark Team was  carrying out further planting and tidy on Platform 2. We understand that Platform 2 should  get its finishing surface before the end of the year – it will look splendid.

Stephen, Mick,  John and I  were working on the next stage of moving the Pods. This involves providing  the necessary  level and firm standing for the Pods. This is to be achieved with the use of slabs supporting the front of the Pods and concrete block columns at the rear. Here Mick is “mixing the muck” for bedding in the slabs and blocks.

Finding some solid ground (clay) wasn’t that easy, but perseverance won the day and the basic ground work was completed by tea break.

Here John gets rid of the dross on the surface and finds a reasonable strip of  clay for us to work from.

By lunchtime  the A team were pleased with their endeavours and will be back to complete the job next week. Here  is the state of play at lunchtime today.

We also had an extra member of the team, I think his name was Robin, He  didn’t mind eating on the job!
