It was bit of an unpleasant day weather wise with a relentless wind all morning, heavy rain at lunch time, and then, thankfully some respite in the afternoon. Apart from Robin, ever determined to reduce the pile of Wisley bricks, the 10 volunteers split into 2 teams, one finishing off the back edge of platform 1A and the other clearing the car park .
By the end of the day the self proclaimed A Team had finish the back edge of 1A and it really looks a treat. The slight narrowing to the slope to avoid the trees looks very in keeping and there is plenty of width for a barrow crossing.
Whilst retrieving soil for the back edge the end of the old platform 2 footings were located. They will have to be extended to match 1A.
In the car park work continues at clearing and tidying up the cut down trees. Also the ditch clearance was continued, Keith and John with shovels in hand. Andy P also showed us his axe swinging skills getting two large willow stumps out of the ditch.
Here I cut a lonely figure shifting the lopped branches from the saplings on the embankment. I really must change my deodorant!
Marguerite Goodman was on duty at the Broadway Shed, selling some great bric a brac to the passing supporters. I cannot emphasise enough how important Marguerite is to our cause. We tread a very fine line in terms of solvency and every pound counts. I know many of you have dipped into your hard earned bank balances for us, and it is much appreciated. Nevertheless I am unashamedly asking for everyone's help in keeping our fine project going. We will get there, but not without your help!
