|Hey! I can hardly bend over here. Stop pushing!|
There were 6 in the gang today, although Pete wasn't always there as he was in high level discussions about some support that might be provided to another project - watch this space!
The ground at Winchcombe is now nice and soft, so it's a good time to get in those posts.
The temporary fencing they put up to give themselves some space is not working that well. The car owners are fighting (pushing) back.
With the first couple of posts in the first fence panel manufactured by Pat can be trial fitted.
What do you think?
The tops of the posts will be cut off once the concrete has set.
Planting the posts slowed down a little when not all of the ground proved to be nice and soft - the Kango hammer had to come out to achieve a satisfactory depth.
Then you give the bottom of the hole a thorough poking with a bar.
Next to the fencing job, B&S are called up to please help with all sorts of other jobs. Can they decorate upstairs in the Elf centre? Can they also put up one side of the shelving there? It seems that a couple of interested parties already want to use the facility, and they are not going to wait forever.
During the day a total of six panels and their posts were installed, with the first one also creosoted.
They intend to put a 2 inch layer of concrete along the bottom, in that strip where the mower can't go.
The gang is now taking a week's holiday, then it's back to work on the third of January.
