There were only four of us today, but we got a lot of work done!  We were treated to home-made Bolognese from the owners to thank us for our work :)



 









 



 





 



 

We have finally glimpsed some of the stairs but we are still stuck with the huge block.  A digger is desperately needed to get it moved - any offers? :)

I was also given a birthday treat from the owners :)








And from some of the members :)  Thank you all!!!!

Not a bad days work for our small group. Everyone worked hard, despite the odd fag break :)

I also enjoyed the lunch prepared for us, and birthday cake :)

Another lot of digging horrible sticky clay soil from the tunnel stairs today but we still can't budge the huge concrete boulder despite the best efforts of my old Land Rover! Still we did have a lovely lunch and birthday cake!  :)

We are being treated to lunch on this work day :)

We will be having home made Spaghetti Bolognese to thank us for our efforts over the last few months!

Is anyone else coming along?  I will need to be able to provide definite numbers!
