27th and 28th July 2013

We’ve been back in the pig sty this weekend, completing the demolition job we began 3 weeks ago. All we now have to do is return to collect the corrugated iron so we can use it for the 2014 Wartime Event (very forward planning). At the station, we had prepared the paddock ready for the Hunmanby Brass Band performance today – cutting long grass, setting up the bar and putting out the notices.
Along the lineside we have completed the brush lopping just south of the station which the Juniors had begun. We will go back and burn it once it has died off and dried a little. On the Great Eastern van the yard side lettering has been reinstated, in black this time, and looks much better. A couple of loose planks have also been screwed tight back onto the frame.
In the yard the spoil heap has been dug up and the material moved onto the lineside ready for a future job. The yard is now back to its old, neat self. Also the small notice board has been reinstated at the yard entrance, following its major repair, advertising the Ware House Art studio at the station.
Following the successful band performance today its been all hands to the pumps to dismantle the bar, the beer tent and marquee. These were all safely stored back in the shed just before we had a rain shower! The paddock is now back to its old self and the grass will have a chance to recover after being under canvas for the last 7 weeks.
Weighbridge Teas and the Tea Hut did very well over the weekend, selling all their wares to a hungry and thirsty clientele.
