Volunteers Morning - Saturday 27th July

A lot was achieved in the four or five hours that we had. Twenty plus volunteers came down and eally got stuck in. And the pub opened as normal at 11am too.

Some of our achievements included:

  • Misting the dry plaster
  • Fixing some paintwork in the school room
  • Further painting in the ladies toilet
  • Cleaning the feature walls
  • Painting some of the old chairs
  • Boarding in the hall behind the bar

A lot more than that was achieved. Oh, and you can't forget the wire strippers too!
