It was another hot sunny day, only first thing was there a slight chill which soon disappeared along with the mist. There were twelve volunteers in today working in different areas, something new, something old.

Work-a-day

Monday 14th May 2018 

Bricks & Trains

Another record broken, our special event at Toddington last weekend brought in the crowds.  Please note if going into the Village it is down the driveway and turn left. It is a long walk the other way to Evesham.
The yellow lines have now been painted so there is no parking on Station Road. Hopefully soon work will start on our own car park

Gardening

Pat and Vic were hard at work clearing the station from overgrowth of weeds and grass. Pat was on the brushcutter and then the strimmer, Vic was using the sprayer to reduce the weeds.




The Shop

The Shop having been installed with shelves, it was time to bring up the goods to stack for display.






Julie and Steve came in to see how things were progressing. Steve set to and started putting items back on the shelves.



Lamp Hut

A lamp hut was originally situated near the footstep bridge so we moved one of our huts to this position. First it was dismantled, legs shortened and moved to the designated area, new plates attached to the legs, then reassembled.









Kerbs and Slabs

With the help of Steve and his JCB further granite kerbs were installed then the path could be finished with paving slabs.
