Two main activities were on the go, which stem from having a mini digger hired for the day, donated by 2 Volunteers (Steve and Ron - cheers gents!) The main task was to excavate sufficient concrete blocks from a defuncted side drain at the North end of the site to complete the1B reinforced foundations. Sufficient being 350+ blocks! When these were stacked up the resultant ballast excavated out was transferred down to 1 A for infill and by the end the day another 20m of 9" deep infill was rolled in. A top job in anyone's book! John and Bob finished off another layer of corbelling on the ramp. It's always interesting to watch the masters at work.

Winchcombe - thanks Pete
It never ceases to amaze me that we get a regular stream of supporters from far and wide. Among our visitors today was a very keen Blog watcher (Andrew) from Wakefield in Yorkshire. It is always good to receive some praise for the lads efforts and we welcome visitors anytime to take a close look at work in progress.
