The block laying on 2B was started, and Clive and Roger were at the front of the queue for placing the first blocks. It was milestone on the project plan to start this activity before the end of the month, so it was personally pleasing to reach this target.
|John C Piling up the ballast on Friday|
As part of the process of digging out the footings some very suitable ballast was extricated and placed behind platform 2 for levelling.
|The Pea Gravel along the line of the drain.....|
On Saturday Jim and Pete K placed some pea gravel along the line of the drain pipe behind the wall.
Having completed this task Jim and Peter moved on to the task of concreting in the fence posts on the driveway boundary. This part of an initiative to tidy up the driveway approach, giving it a more cared for appearance.
Over in the car park a last attempt was made on the ragwort by Dave B and Keith G. They managed to get a bonfire going to dispose of the removed ragwort. Some kind soul pointed the fire out to a passing Fire Brigade Unit, who gave us some informal advice about keeping a couple of buckets of water on hand, particularly in the dry weather. All good sense. One of team suggest that a spare bucket of water might also be used to throw on the volunteers to cool them down also. A fair point on such a hot day!
Thanks to everyone who helped this weekend. The following is a potpourri of photos from Friday.
