Workshop news!

Wednesday, August 5th 2009

It has been a warm overcast and slightly rainy day here today. Nine volunteers turned up to do various tasks such as strimming, mowing, pruning, tidying, surveying and filling bird feeders.

The workshop news is that at last the windows are installed. You can see Harry working on the last one. The doors have arrived and are waiting to go in. Watch this space for more news!

Andy and Jamie, the electricians also came to carry on in the workshop. Despite a power cut they managed to install all the sockets.
