March Update – The Shed goes up!!!


Tuesday 15th March saw the day when we gained a team of 6 to get the initial stage of the shed erected. A slow start at first with two hoops installed by the end of the first day, despite the great assistance from a tele-handler. The following day another 6 turned up to continue the job and got another 2-and-a-half segments up. It was a better day on Thursday though which took the total up to 9. Following a good day on Friday another team of 6 turned up on Saturday morning at 8am. By 5pm we had managed to get 15 whole hoops installed.

My thanks go to everybody who helped over the past week including Richard, Graham, Steve, Jonathan, Andrew, David, Trevor, Scott, Ralph and Chris.

All being well we should have a good day this coming Friday when we hope to get the structure finished. It would be great to get as many people on site as possible. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact
