I think I have mentioned our plan to start a regular brick laying session on Mondays, Well today it started in earnest! Here is Tony's report and Paul's pictures.

Hi Bill, here is today's update. Photos to come via Paul. The Monday Special was manned today by Clive, Roger B, Steve, Paul and myself.
Current work on platform 2 is now complete to corbelling height. Second course of corbelling added to the first section and half the remainder has now got the first course.
Warm and sunny day helped keep the energy levels up.

The next step is to get the corbelling finished and the coping slabs on. We can then plan the next stage of the platform going northwards.
If you, our generous supporters would like to help the cause by sponsoring a slab, I and the rest of the team would be most grateful. The brick laying team have worked wonders during the winter months, but we have not had similar opportunities to fund raise. I know many of you have dug deep before, but if you can sponsor 1 slab the cost is £20.20 paid through the donate button. For interest our cost for the next section of platform footings is £8000. Any contribution is therefore a valuable contribution.Thank you!
