The weather continues to outwit the forecasters, we thought that we were guaranteed a day in the messroom drinking tea and putting the world to rights because of the expected precipitation but Broadway escaped and the 15 of us on site made the most of it.
But first things first, Daggerboard Dave got cracking on the most important task....
In this view Ian is moving bricks from the south gable end to the side of the building currently under construction, Robin is bringing the latest barrow load of mortar to the expectant brickies. Three courses were possible today leaving two more to bring this elevation up to the level of the gable end
Today's mortar man, Robin, appears to be serenading the mixer with his air guitar shovel. Try the shovel the other way round Robin (actually he has just thrown a shovelful of cement into the mixer).
Not to be forgotten, John B was head gardener today and is just returning to the fold after delivering another barrowful of weeds to the pile. Joyce was relief shopkeeper and had an excellent day with the bric-a-brac.
Just in case previous reminders passed you by there is still time to tell you that next Friday, May 27th, sees the Broadway Area Group's open evening when local residents and others interested in the project are welcome to visit us. There will be access to a limited area of the track bed which is where light refreshments will be available accompanied by some live music. Hope to see you there!
One last view of the station building showing the window and door frames on this side with supporting scaffold boards removed. Looks good doesn't it?
