Well I hope you all had a very Happy Christmas and didn’t over indulge! With the festivities over it was back to it at our station. We have got the lean to roof completed with its lead flashing now the ice and rain have abated making the job possible again. New extra large gutter brackets have now been made and painted for the shed. The guttering should be installed later this week. The lineside fencing renewal has continued with further posts and rails installed. Wellies are the order of the day for this job as we continue replacing the fence through a marsh!
Work to repair our platform benches has continued with the good sections of one retired bench seat helping to repair another. A bit of time is now required to allow the timber to fully dry out before we can glue and dowel the sections together and make a good one. Two other benches fortunately only need a repaint and this is now underway in the CCT and our winter paintshop.
Weighbridge Teas have been open for the last couple of days supplying hot drinks, food and mince pies to our visitors and Wombles alike.
