Thank you to the intrepid workers today . Ray, Jon, Stuart, Stan and Bill, standing proudly by the start of the bonfire! Mention must also go to Peter Wyche and Ian Noble (and I think it was Stan again), who also worked through on Friday ahead of the Saturday team.

The Jetties are now prepped for our contractor to start pulling out the larger sections and piles.

No working party on Sunday, we’ll update you when we have another planned.
