The planking for the new false door on the container has been delivered and given a first coat of primer.  The skirting boards for the toilet van have had their grey undercoat applied.  The new ‘door’ for the container has been trial fitted inside its ‘new’ frame cladding.  The platform edging has been repainted in readiness for the new season.  All being well, the garden edging and planters will be done next weekend.

The fuel tank on the dumper was taken away for a good flush and the installation of a dip stick, it has been fitted back into place and the dumper is now back in action.  Its first task was to recover old fencing materials from Northdale for ‘upcycling’ at Kidstye into firewood.

Weighbridge Teas have been in to give the building a good cleaning in readiness for their reopening shortly.  Thanks to the new fridge, which came a fortnight ago, they have been able to replace one which is on its last legs.
