2013 2013 2013 <div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">A great turnout today of 20 Volunteers and we were looking to push on with the work on Platform 2.<br /><br /><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: right; margin-left: 1em; text-align: right;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-g_KGVkqTTwE/UgxpON2qjOI/AAAAAAAAIhc/lNzPqYFQkM8/s1600/13-08-14+023.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-g_KGVkqTTwE/UgxpON2qjOI/AAAAAAAAIhc/lNzPqYFQkM8/s320/13-08-14+023.jpg" width="240" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Bob &amp; Clive rightly admire their handywork...</td></tr></tbody></table>The bricklaying gang had to make the transition back from &nbsp;laying the 2lb Lego bricks at Cheltenham to laying the &nbsp;50lb blocks along the new 2B footing at Broadway. A total of 87 were laid the full length of the footing. This was a remarkable achievement by Clive and Bob, only made possible by a constant supply of "muck" by Roger. Jo was able to add a further 7 rebars to our reinforcement of the back row of blocks.<br /><br /><br /><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: left; text-align: left;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZHAMK0jcyNQ/Ugxrnyi0lbI/AAAAAAAAIhs/7IacfCtRtqo/s1600/IMGP0237.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="150" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ZHAMK0jcyNQ/Ugxrnyi0lbI/AAAAAAAAIhs/7IacfCtRtqo/s200/IMGP0237.JPG" width="200" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Roger keeps the muck coming with a smile....</td></tr></tbody></table><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: right; margin-left: 1em; text-align: right;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-cbp2QixR5Rg/UgxtVlAMklI/AAAAAAAAIh8/kQHInhI8-fA/s1600/13-08-14+001.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="240" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-cbp2QixR5Rg/UgxtVlAMklI/AAAAAAAAIh8/kQHInhI8-fA/s320/13-08-14+001.jpg" width="320" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">crazy paving.....</td></tr></tbody></table>On another Front Roger B and the slab laying gang were itching to set to at finishing the coping slab laying on Platform 2.

The challenge was to get the 16 slabs on before the close of play. The gang &nbsp; &nbsp;(Roger, Rod, Terry, Peter and of course Richard from Fairview, together with Peter Q and Roger J &nbsp;on the mortar supply) worked tirelessly until the 16 slabs were laid. By 4:30 the job was done.
