|The Mythe bricks on the left....|
Well I won't say they were tricky but Pete K brought his dog Tilly along to make sure the good ones did not go astray.
Down in the car park Dave B continued to extract good bricks from the pile. Steve and Jo shifted rubble to the back of platform 2. There is plenty to have a go at!
|A gravity defying moment with the roller|
|All was well|
In the end 3 dumper loads of bricks were put behind platform 2 by Jo and Steve. It was job well done.
In parallel with this activity dumper loads of rubbish were being taken up to the northern end of the site. This was partly to burn the ragwort remains and partly to get rid of an accumulation of rubbish which quickly build up on a busy site.
And so that was the end to a busy but enjoyable day. I should just like to added a few "thank you's". Firstly to all the visitors and supporters that came along today. I'm sorry if I did not get a chance to speak to you properly. Your continued support is vital to us. Secondly a thank you to Jo who took time out yesterday(Friday) to give a talk on our progress to the Broadway Park Caravan Club(Leedons). Some 50 people came along to the coffee morning and I'm sure Jo's enthusiasm will have been infectious.
Finally this is an earnest appeal for volunteers with brick laying skills. As we continue to move forward at an increasing pace, we find that this is our scarce resource. If you have or are laying bricks professionally and can spare even a day a month, we would love to hear from you. Secondly if you feel you would like to gain some brick laying skills then come along and speak to us also. I would emphasis it has to been something you really want to do - not something to "have a dabble" in. A very enthusiastic lady supporter came along yesterday and said she wished she could help with the brick laying. Well, under the a fore mentioned criteria, why not!
A big Happy Birthday to our colleague and guiding light John Crawford. He will be 69 again and I hope he has a great day.
