Volunteers Morning - Saturday 10th August

A very windy Saturday curtailed activities and required some fixing of the roof. However that did not dampen the spirit of the volunteers who stuck in during the morning. There was still a lot to do and as usual the team approached it with gusto.

  • From pulling down another ceiling in the hall area,
  • to making a start to the cleaning of the kitchen ceiling,
  • actually painting the bar ceiling,
  • more localised stripping of the bar windows to wire stripping
  • And tidying out the stables too!

Planning is undeway for the next morning so we can keep the pace going and finish the bar area ASAP.
