Events Diary: Volunteer Day
As we got closer and closer to the opening, the more and more the volunteers came forward to help. Over thirty people came down this day to help out. We had a variety of tasks that were undertaken, including:
- plaster boarding,
- paint stripping,
- putting up shelving,
- tidying the kitchen,
- cleaning the first floor,
- washing down plastic seats,
- and wire stripping too.
There are too that are probably missed, apologies. A few stayed on into the evening, chewing the cud and drinking a couple of beers.
A huge thanks to all who attended. Also to Doug Seebug who provided the photos of the morning.
