This was a bit of a slalom job for Steve, avoiding people and bricks along the way. I could hear him tutting above the radio in his cab!
Nevertheless the job got done and it was a fine effort from all the volunteers who shovelled ballast all day to level it out. The infilled strip was wide enough for Steve B to drive Dot along it! That happened after I left so I was unable to get an action shot. Sorry!

It looks as though you could land a747 on it!
On other fronts Lamp Hut No. 1 got more paint stripped off it and its really beginning to look ready for a coat of paint (Dark Stone me thinks).
We also had a very interesting visit from the Building Department (Rob Smith) at Worcester College of Technology and I am hopeful that we can enter into a cooperation partnership, which allows students to come along each Wednesday, learn some practical skills and in so doing add some value to our project. I am a great believer in this approach and I will endeavour to make sure this is a successful venture. This is being coordinated by Chris Brooks, the Regeneration Manager from Wychavon District Council.
Finally we had a very welcome visit from Senior Volunteer (experience not age!) Bryan Merrett from GWR Winchcombe who has offered us a few "goodies" for us to refurb. during the Winter months. Bryan is thinking about joining us also and we will of course make him welcome.
