Porters Hut Relocated

It seemed like a good idea at the time!!

It was a bitterly cold day in January. An intrepid band of us took on the task of moving the Porters Hut at Havenstreet, an historic building in excess of 100 Years old, and not a job to be undertaken lightly. 

With the use of a forklift, and much ingenuity from those two fine well known engineers Mr Heath and Mr Robinson, the task was accomplished.

There will be a full report in the next IWSR Bulletin, when I have thawed out and am able to write it!! 

In the meantime we are still looking for help on the Maintenance team, and if you would like to get involved, we would love to see you. We are here Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Gently does it..

A helping hand..
A helping hand.. so far the only casualty is the porch!
Not much space to manoeuvre..

Glass, doors and floor still intact...
Glass, doors and floor all still intact..
Almost home..
Almost home, and Steve Castle shows his absolute mastery of the fork lift..
The eagle has landed
