All Hands On Deck

As you would all be aware, the restoration of 6029 is moving forward at quite a rate, and every work day brings us closer to putting a fire back in the old girl, but this coming workday is perhaps one of the most important, especially when it comes to having somewhere to put the fire.

Alan has asked that anyone available comes this Saturday the 6th, as more hands make lighter work, and there is little heavy lifting to do.... Its time to refit the fire grate, and we need some bodies to lift the iron support casting back into position. The more people who turn up, the greater chance we have of getting it back in position and in turn, the rest of the grate mechanism can then be re-fitted.

So if you can make it on Saturday, come along and help, The younger and fitter the better, but hey, more hands make lighter work, and sometimes, even moral support will help, so brave the cold and lend a hand...
