Rain and more Rain, then wind

Monday 5th November

A date to remember with a fire on the go as Clive clears the embankment near Station Road. Outside on the road adjacent were Western Power installing pipework for the electrical cable that will run under the road into the car park.

Station Loft

Dave and Peter Q were finishing off the installation of loft boards. Dave admiring their handiwork whilst Peter is beavering away.

The Bench

Sometimes it is nice to sit and chat about the days work Tony and Peter K planning what's next.

Brick Cleaning

A number of requests had been received as to whether the brick work could be cleaned. Today a pressure washer was used to improve the appearance. So as not to damage the pointing wire brushing was also required.

Vic was again in the Station garden dodging the showers. Only one barrow load was collected before the heavens open with a heavy deluge so rain stopped play. I think the collection was more for the bonfire the composting. Yuck, yuck it was from a Yucca.

Saturday 10th November

Yesterday was very windy, so todays first job was to collect all the fallen branches and more pine needles. Two volunteers who had been absent whilst we could not work on Saturdays were back and this was their job to collect the debris and barrow it to the bonfire site.

Broadway Bric a Brac Shed

We were able to open the shop today. A visitor from the Caravan Club site looking for some items. John B managed the shop with Julie popping in to see how things were going.

The Gardens

Vic paid a visit to the local nursery, obtaining boxes of Winter Pansies and a Shrub.

The flower pots and beds have again gained a bit of colour roll on Spring.

The Carpenters

Dave and Brian were busy in the woodwork cabin making shelves for storage.

So that is all for today folks, I'm off granddaughter sitting so will be back on the 21st.

  1. A couple of blurry photos but welcome nonetheless.
    The brick cleaning seems a huge success.
    If the pine needles continue as they have, you may need a 'billy goat' as at CRC!
    Good to see the shop open, even in the close season; and the flowers and shrub always make the place look better in these winter months.
    The shelving looks very professional. Well done to all.
    Maybe next year an armistice day service could be considered.
    Regards, Paul.
