With just 2 weeks to go before the new operating season, all the volunteers in attendance were busy putting the finishing touches to the closed season’s maintenance tasks. There were 13 stalwarts signed in today.
The Ticket Office was getting an external wash and brush up with the Karcher, with Stephen at the controls. Those visiting the work room had to dodge the showers!
Bob was making best efforts to install the refurbished notice board by the main entrance. As ever with these tasks there is always always one awkward b…… nut or bolt which makes the job twice as long. Here we can see there is nothing like a mini crisis to “draw the crowds” with good advice. As it happens, a vice is just what was needed!
On the gardening front, John has been doing a fine job on the reconstruction the bank, adjacent to the container. The photo belies the amount of work that went into removing the clay, re-profiling the bank and substituting some good topsoil. Nice one John.
Last but not least was the ongoing work lining the container. Tim, Mick, Ben and yours truly set ourselves the task of fixing 2 of the 6 plywood panels to the ceiling. After much preparation and girding of loins, the gravity defying job was done and I have to say it looked pretty DG!. Smiles all round.
