Following the success of last weekend’s 60’s Fest, it was time to take down the Beer Tent and all the bunting.  The bar, bar stools, and floor were cleaned down and put away, allowing the tent to be dismantled.  This wasn’t immediately put away, but instead transported to near the cottages for the annual Station Group BBQ.  The smaller ‘kitchen’ tent was also erected to ensure everyone could be accommodated undercover if it rained – which it didn’t!  The BBQ was a huge success and everyone had a great time.

Sunday dawned dry and bright so it was time to take it all down and finally put it all away properly.  The next time we will need some of the equipment is on August Bank Holiday Monday, when Hunmanby Brass Band will be performing in the Paddock.

Elsewhere, painting continues on the Wagon Group’s box van, with the underframe receiving a coat of undercoat.  Our wagons have had some TLC as well.  The rusty bottom edge of the LNER High Goods body has been cleaned down and given a coat of primer, whilst the Shock Open has had the roof sheet bar improved.  The white undersheet has had eyelets fitted and been securely tied down to keep the contents dry.  The original grey top sheet, although not too bad to look at, is past its best and leaks in places.

The Station gardens are still riot of colour and long may they continue.  The gardeners have been down again, starting the cutting back and tying up of the roses for next year.  The gravel around the Camping Coach has been given a major de-weed and looks much smarter now. 

Weighbridge Teas had another good weekend, although not as hectic as last weekend’s 60’s Fest.
