Site Preparation (1)
You are reminded that this year we are Open on the evening of 20th June 2019 from 6 pm to 8.30 pm. We will in fact have a Working Party on the morning of the Open Evening itself, at which time we will be busy tidying up the site for presentation to visitors.
But in order to press ahead, we have scheduled extra Work Parties on each of the Thursday mornings between now and 20th June 2019.
On Thursday 20th June 2019 we will have some Reception tentage to erect during the day and a couple of tables for refreshments. With limited time available to us, and to relieve the pressure on the volunteers, we will not this year have an Information tent and display table, and we will provide fewer visitor chairs and tables.
We will have a more limited selection of refreshments for sale, including soft drinks, and Prosecco, and dishes of nibbles, but no cake.
Hilary Ward will value offers of help with the refreshments.
We ask for a full turn out of volunteers to help with the many tasks to get the site ready, and to guide visitors safely around the site on the evening.
We will also need ‘all hands to the pumps’ to help clear up afterwards.
