The main tasks of the day were as follows:-
Painting the mess room (portakabin) prior to its relocation on Platform 1. Ron stuck at this all day and there was very little shade. But it looks a whole lot better than before - particularly the back, which had not been painted before. Ron has promised to come back on Wednesday to finish the job, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him on an early flight back to Hong Kong - one of the long range volunteer commutes!
|You have to capture your own handiwork sometimes!|
A general tidy up of bricks, rubble and dead branches etc required the dumper in action. Here depositing the much written about broken slabs behind platform 2! Needless to say the cameraman was the driver......
Further north the corbelling continued and we are now a 150 bricks away from finishing this section of wall. Bob and Clive are here discussing tactics for finishing it off on Wednesday.
If the Devil had cast his net..... especially as these visits were preceded by Steve Sperring. the Trust's Fund Raising Director.
A late entry for the pic of the week . John Baldertone sent me this picture from yesterday which nicely shows the curve on Platform 1 and three volunteers finding a bit of shade for lunch... Cheers John.
