Apologies for the late news but it was a late finish last Sunday evening, after a very busy weekend.

Well what a great 60’s weekend!  A great turnout of visitors enjoyed live music from the Vox Beatles, some of whom had come all the way from Brighton to play in the marquee at Levisham.  The Beer Tent virtually sold out, with additional beer having to be brought in on the Saturday evening because so much had been consumed during the day.  The same can be said of The Cavern, AKA the Tea Hut, with Weighbridge Teas not far behind; extra sandwiches had to be made and further cakes and savouries ordered for Sunday.

All this would not have been possible without a lot of work immediately before and after the event.  This included cutting all the grass; opening up the tents and setting out the bar and stage; cladding the Tea Hut in silver; delivering, preparing and then tidying up all the food and resulting rubbish, collecting and washing used glasses; moving full and empty barrels around the Station and finally taking down the main marquee.

In between all this, some work did get done on other projects.  Our new shed now sports its small palings, which cover the joints between the ‘sleeper’ planks.  Inside the shed the insulation of the walls has been completed, as has the fitting of the Kingspan panels between the rafters.  This might be the warmest shed on the Station this winter!

The roses are in full bloom, as are many of the plants, giving a riot of colour along both platforms.  The weeding of gardens still continues though; will it never end!?!.
