Saturday 17th March
Cor! The wind did blow, extra thermals on today! Ten volunteers braved the weather and completed the tasks set out for them.
Vic set to and replaced the bars that had been removed near the telephone box. These were removed so that work on connecting the mains water supply to the station could be completed by Steve W. With everything back in place and after an inspection, Vic also added creosote where this was required.
Some of the spring flowers are in bloom with others waiting to come out!
Vic was also preparing another bed for flowers at the northern end of Platform 1.
Not somewhere that one can dash to hide. Peter K, with assistance from Stuart, drilled a hole and fitted the special tube for the bolt on the gate to slide into. Neal C was also doing the same for the doors into the entrance hall. All it needs now is the casting of a granite threshold at the bottom of the door.
The next photo supplied by Ron shows the slab laying which was finished yesterday. Just needs the sand infill between the gaps for it to be completed.
Bric-a-Brac ShopIn the next couple of weeks we should re-erect the shop on the platform. This is the place where it will be resurrected.
Terry and Rod's team erected additional Heras fencing to prevent access to the uncoated area.
With all the planned work finished, we were able to go home early. Was there a surprise??
