It was a very good turn out yesterday even though the cold weather put a block on any brick laying. The volunteers split into two groups - those who wanted to sweat it out by the car park bonfire, and those who wanted to continue construction, albeit with pick and shovel!
Here Ken and John set to with laying drainage pipes behind 1B. This lateral drainage peculates through to pipes that take water through the foundations across to a planned new centre drain.
Here the dumper unloads bricks ready to build the 1B wall proper. These are stacked in convenient piles along the length of 1B in order to keep the bricklayers going at a steady pace.
Here Clive's wishes the dumper could stack the bricks as well as drop them over the wall. All in all it was another great effort and will facilitate a fast start by the Worcester College lads in January.
Here are some very good shots from Jo who, as with all the photos today has a good eye for both candid shots and good perspective.
