SDC Thursday Volunteers

by: Ian Moody

Weatherwise it was truly a day of two halves and we definitely preferred the first half. At Wallbridge Lower Lock we continued the tidy-up and removed the shuttering from the new steps. 

Over at Brewery Wall we painted the fence, painted the windows, landscaped the top area and tidied up the site.  Unfortunately we had to put all the rubbish into an imaginary skip because the real one failed to arrive at the prearranged time.  Later that day the same skip failed to arrive at the rearranged time.  Who knows, maybe it will arrive on Tuesday at the re-rearranged time.

In between the two work sites we had a team team tackle a large area of graffiti on the mural under Brewery Bridge.  The mural has a protective coating on it called "Graffiti Magic" and it certainly lived up to its name, with the graffiti requiring only water and elbow grease to remove it.  Nice work.

After lunch we worked on in the rain then went for an early bath.
