Some Physical Work

It's probably been a while for some of the guys or maybe not, but they were getting some exercise this week and it wasn't shifting more urinals. In fact we had the turf for the lawn delivered and it was down to all the boys to unload it and get it piled up ready to be laid (first and second photo). When it finally is laid the transformation is stunning, from what used to a wasteland (third photo) to an expanse of dirt (fourth photo) and finally a lush green lawn fit for a game of bowls & for our punters to enjoy on those warm sunny days, fingers crossed!(last photo). It's amazing to go through all the photos we have documenting the various stages and see the transformstion, so we will show a few more examples of before, during and after in time.

We're still on tender hooks regarding water & gas. Gas has a provisional date of 21st June, which is going to make opening on the 18th just a little bit impossible. We're hopeful that with enough nagging the date can be brought forward. Other than that (remarkably) the build is on schedule.
