The fine weather assists in the visibility of many other jobs going on. Here's a round up of the catch today:
Wood sales continue to flourish. The regular truck load of wood arrived, followed by the inevitable splitting process. Two bays of the magnificent wood pile are now fully stocked to the rafters. All this contributes nicely to our funds. Like the books, it's a valuable bread and butter income.
Our 'Carnival' welfare unit was a hive of activity. Real progress with the wiring was evident, it is really taking shape. The ceiling now sports several led strip lights. Along the side wall sits a fine roll of lino floor covering waiting to be laid.
Out in the yard, a strimmer received a service, work boat Mole was having the hook system for the cover installed. A new bespoke cover will keep the craft dry when not in use.
One of the maintenance tasks carried out by WD volunteers is known as 'swinging the ocean'. This involves opening and closing the swing bridge over the canal at the Stonehouse Ocean. This is done nominally once per fortnight to ensure the bridge operating gear is kept in good working order. Today was one of those days when two volunteers were despatched after a gap of five weeks of very cold weather. A full report with pictures to follow next time the bridge is swung.
Finally, your TC member (Fundraising), appeared with a home baked cake for the lads & lasses in celebration of her significant and upcoming birthday this weekend. It was well received by all and of course, totally demolished by end of play.
