Update for the 4th December, 2020
Never in the courtyard of pub refurbishment has so much been achieved by so few! After their incredible efforts this week our valiant Weekday Warriors have truly earned our thanks. They battled through the underground debris of the courtyard, revealing what may have been foundations for old stables, to lay in the ducting needed for power supplies to the new kitchen. They also battled through the torrential rain too.
Passers by may have seen the tons of rubble building up which needed removal by grab lorry. And also the delivery lorry for sand and scalpings to fill in the trench.
The trenching has been filled in ready for reopening and, in between deliveries of materials, good progress was made in the stripping out of the kitchen. This revealed a range of interesting wildlife and pottery; some fresh, other historical! Thanks this week to those that literally put their backs into it; Ian, Anthony, John, Tony, Steve, Trevor and Lexie.
The bar really benefited from hard graft of the volunteers who came in. They gave the place a lick of paint followed by a good scrub and brush up. We'd like to thank our socially distanced painters: Trevor, Colin, Jeff, Tony, Miranda, Bez, Dawn, Richard, Debbie & Steve, Anne and of course Ian. See last week's diary page too.
Please note we have tried our best to include photos of everyone involved, and also mentioned, but if you are missing, then please give us a shout and we will update this page.
