And that was that……


21 empty workshop  picture by our ‘last man out’ , Graham Ludlam.

The Team spent all day Saturday and Sunday emptying the workshop in Sheffield. This was in response to our Chairman, Richard, calling all hands to the pumps to achieve an emergency bale-out of the premises having received an email early in the week from the estate management company (at the Sheffield workshop) who informed us we had to have everything out by the end of this weekend!

So, Richard hired a flat bed lorry, Paul turned up with his van, Dave, Graham, Steve and Mike turned up with cars and it just happened !

having seen the picture (above), our ever-frugal treasurer, Trevor, commented :
‘Graham Are you telling me that you left the chairs behind? Well done everyone!  A magnificent effort’. Trevor.

And here is the scene at Rowsley as we unloaded at what is now ‘base camp’ .

Very soon upwards of 100 tons of hard core is turning up to create vehicle access to the site, and enable the laying of a concrete base for the new workshop.

Oh deepest joy !

the last word from the ever-observant Ludlam: ‘3 workers and 3 managers’ !
