12th-14th October 2018

It’s been a weekend of wild variation, weather wise. From damp on Friday to very wet on Sunday, Saturday was a huge contrast being dry and hot. Wind though was a major problem (isn’t it always) all weekend; indeed the marquee tried to collapse on the Friday evening, resulting in us having to get out after 9pm and add quite a few more ropes to ensure it stayed in the yard.
This year’s 1945 VE Celebration at Levisham centred upon the British Restaurant theme with vegetable soup, minced beef and vegetable stew and dumplings followed by Spotted Dick and custard being the main choice. A vegetarian and vegan option was available, together with lighter options. Along with hot drinks, a bar was available for those wanting a different sustenance. As usual, the catering was well received by our visitors. The Restaurant was supported by Cash and Carry outlets (our good old Weighbridge Teas and the Tea Hut). These were selling their usual take out wares, the latter outlet being particularly popular.
The reason for this popularity was the presence of the Dance Hall marquee in the paddock. This hosted both taped and live music from a variety of acts, both bands and solo singers. To support the tea hut, another bar was set up inside this marquee as well.
A big thank you to all the Wombles and Catering Teams who helped set all this up, work in the marquees and then help clean down and tidy it all up (which continues tomorrow and next weekend.).
Elsewhere around the station, work has continued emptying 1111 together with fitting out of the paint shop Palvan. In the CCT, a plan has been drafted for the final layout of the racking and stores.
