Tursday 20th August 2020


Ed Bolam, Harry Sams, Colin Bowman, Dave Wright, Allan Wilson, Andy Bell, Arthur and dog present.

All except Arthur and Ed finished off the gardening and very well it looks.

Ed turned up with a joint from the Q6 and needed 2 blanking plates with the same hole centres. We found one that would fit in a box under the storage racking but had to make another one from a piece of suitable plate. By the time it was finished there wasn't much point in doing anything outside. Everybody was gone by 2.45pm.
