August 18th:

The ever dependable team of Chatburn, Crowther, Goodier, Lett and Peppit Senior, complemented by our VP, Glynn Hughes, and Clowes, who should be complimented on making the meet from their homes in the SE, along with the Meet Leaders swung, both metaphorically and physically, into action in reducing the pile of uncut wood into an orderly store to be consumed over the winter in our fine new stove.  The additional source of wood from our President’s forest failed to materialise as the gate was locked but Johnson and Lett nonetheless managed to cut timber for later collection.

 Meanwhile back at the Hut the combined DIY and technical skills of Chatburn, Clowes and Harris transformed our collapsed and seriously dilapidated wood store into a fine replacement which was then filled with the cut timber and all trace of the old store and redundant equipment in it was removed from site.
