Today, Saturday 2th, was a lovely day at Fimber Halt. Lots of sunshine and no showers!

Our youngest volunteer, Brad, got to work on VB3 removing rust and old paint from the steels and giving a coat of primer.

Chris did some very hard work breaking up badly damaged concrete carriers.

You probably cant see them but he's wearing ankle shackles as well!

Robin came with his ride on and cut the grass for us. Remarkable how quickly he did it. If only we could afford one just like his! Donations please!!

He did the entire site, including field 2 in less than two hours!

I wasn't idle. I applied wood preservative (2 coats) to the inside of VB3, ensured Brad's safety etc and with Chris's help removed one of the roof bands, prepared it and primed it (and then forgot to take a photo of it).

Although the preservative is colourless you can see where your up to, until it dries.

I also spoke with three groups of visitors about our aims and objectives.

A good day!
