A GREAT WEEKEND’S WORK AT WAPPENSHALL
Despite the inclement May weather, a good turnout of our wonderful volunteers meant that a huge amount of progress was made this week. Not only was the difficult inclined section of the East Basin’s retaining wall concreted successfully and the penultimate vertical top section poured too, but new drainage was installed to ensure all the surface water from the car park does not find its way into the basin any more. In addition, another 5 concrete slabs were prepared. This involved levelling the ground (mud!) and then putting in the polythene membrane and support rings for the reinforcing mesh. Very hard work in the conditions!
