Just a quick update from today. 14 Volunteers today, prepared to sweat it out in temperatures into the 80's
A great deal of preparation work was done in setting out Platform 1A. Ron Briz in some shorts from Costa Del Lottle (very trendy!) led the charge at setting out the platform wall alignment. This was completed ready for the start of building next week. All the materials have been moved into place and the wall should be well on the way to completion by the end of the year, funds permitting.
You will notice also that the inspection chambers on the central drainage have been built up to their correct height and covered. (See pic on the right) This is to both protect the drains which have been cleaned and to get the the correct perspective on the first courses of blocks in the wall.
On other fronts, the sleeper wall by the new fence adjacent to the B&B have been nailed together with rebars. This was only possible with a petrol powered drill supplied by PWay. Thanks chaps for bringing it over. We couldn't have done it without it! A few more sleepers from Stanton next week and the job will be done. The fence and sleepers look a treat.
