Camping.

Just a reminder to those thinking of coming to a future open day, there’s the camp site only 50yds from the Post. The Lamb family would be very happy to have you stay, we have some planning to stay there for the next one. Have a look at the website.

Open day.

You may have noticed a new tab at the top of this page, I’ve added a new page with photo’s of our first open day. The day was a great success and it was a tremendous pleasure to see everyone there.

Fingers crossed for good weather.

We’re hoping for good weather this coming weekend for our first Open Day, we’ll be welcoming visitors between 10:00 and 16:00, there’ll be tea, coffee, cakes and scones available for a donation to the restoration fund which is running at a severe deficit. Come along and see how we’re getting on, we’re not finished but we’re very nearly there, the paint should be dry by Saturday!

The countdown begins…

Now less than three weeks until the first open day and work continues although it seems every job completed leaves another two to do! The last couple of weeks has seen the concrete patched up following the replacement of the hatch frame, the bunks have been installed too. Unfortunately the concrete now needs painting and the bunks need rubbing down and painting, the shaft needs painting too! We’re having a work day this week to get the brushes out and hopefully to also finish the external communications wiring. Thanks to the incredible generosity of some fellow restorers we’ll have a fantastic display of equipment for the day.
