Parish Councillor David Leader, Chairperson of the Comrades Hall committee led a work party yesterday afternoon and issued the following statement together with the photographs:
“I have just got back from today’s work party at Bernard’s Place. We started working in freezing temperatures but it did warm up to minus 1. Today we were preparing the wall for renovation. This challenging project is being undertaken by Chris Edgerley who is providing all his time free of charge saving the hall committee many hundreds of pounds. We simply can not thank him enough.
Today we cut the overgrown hedge on the top of the wall back, cleared built up soil and removed loads of ivy. The wall is falling down and we have had to cordon the wall off to prevent any accidents. Please do not go inside the cordon. It is clearly marked with cones and tape.
All the essential work was carried out by Chris, Stefan, Amanda, Daren, Margaret, Sally, Bob, John and myself. To these intrepid volunteers I extend a massive thank you, community spirit at its best.
All the work was carried out with rigid social distancing. Hope everyone has a good weekend and stays safe in these difficult times.
With kind regards
Chairperson, Comrades Hall”
