Another quiet Saturday with only 11 volunteers available. Unfortunately no bricklayers this week, so no photos of construction, but other important tasks were progressed.
One of these was the footbridge
During assembly of the bridge a number of bolts were used that were not of an ideal length that is to say they were too long. Peter K spent the day replacing these bolts with some of the correct length.
Roger continued with the striping and priming of the lamp posts for the area of the station drive opposite the station. These posts will soon be ready to go in as its probably easier to paint the top coats when the post is vertical.
Peter and Keith did some prep work around the station building getting ready for the next bricklaying session but the other main area of activity was the new fence.
The day job for Robin, after helping with the fence, was the difficult one down on the cutting side pulling up the ragwort. Is there a lot more of it this year or is that just an illusion? It seems never ending at Broadway.
A couple of us went to the Bloxham auction to acquire some signs for Broadway station building and also to meet some old acquaintances and catch up on the gossip. There were a fair number of useful and interesting signs for sale but we limited ourselves to the "GENTLEMEN" sign seen above, which is in excellent condition, and a "WAY OUT" sign which can just be seen poking itself in the bottom right corner of the photo.
