Fine dining, blood, sweat, and tears

19 August 2006

Another successful Work Party season has come to an end.  This year was no exception to the wide variety of activities that took place.

 

We have seen a whirlwind of conservation activity over the last few weeks…

including walls repaired, cleit roofs re-turfed (and re-turfed again after high winds!), church gutter replaced (and secured again after high winds!), old drains cleared of silt debris (just in time for the heavy rain!), and the WW1 gun painted with another protective coat (delayed a couple of times due to bad weather!), not to mention all the hinges and rusty bolts that needed replacing on doors and windows around Village Bay.

Blood, sweat and tears went into repairing cleit roofs

 

 

But it hasn’t been all bad weather this summer, we’ve enjoyed the fine days in style…
