WRG Training Weekend - Brimscombe Port - 23/24 June
by: Jon P.
The red T-shirts of WRG descended upon Brimscombe Port for their annual national training weekend. This is the 2nd time in succession that CCT, SVCC, and SDC have hosted this event, so we must be doing something right.
Training sessions were available for small excavators, large excavators, dumpers, scaffolding, bricklaying, lime mortar, bricksaw, CAT scanning, breaker hammers, etc.. Plenty of CCT and SDC volunteers turned up to take advantage of this training which, in most cases, assumed no previous experience. The accommodation at Brimscombe Port provided a 'hub' for feeding, sleeping, and event administration. The available space here, and around the site of the old Port, provides ample opportunity for this sort of training The bricklaying, lime mortar training (provided by Ty Mawr Lime Ltd of Brecon), and scaffolding was carried out behind the Heras fencing, keeping well clear of the Rush Skatepark visitors.
