Well we do manage to get the good weather and today was no exception. There were 25 troops on site today, including the Worcester College likely lads.
The main focus was the continuing build of the Platform 1B wall. Great progress was made. It is great to see the pride that the college students take in their work. If it were me I would be pretty fed up with laying these blocks by now, but no, they kept at it and by the end of the day, all the 1B block work was done. A fantastic job. Only a lack of ballast stopped them from completing the infill.
Of course part of ensuring the weather is kind to us is morning prayers and here Steve Rod and Terry do the necessary.
At the other end of the site we were hopeful of getting some 1A coping slabs laid, but we were only
partially successful. The start of this work was hampered by some lorry congestion on site. A drop off of some free second hand bricks from Vic Haines Transport blocked the main thoroughfare. Although always grateful for donation of materials I will have to make a better job of the scheduling deliveries.
The laying of the slabs has become a well planned team effort. Here Rod makes sure the gang on the ground are ready to receive the next slab. I am sure next time we will see a significant number laid.
Thanks again to Jo for this weeks photos (and the extra one from Peter).
