Letter from the headteacher.
First get to the task in hand First get to the task in hand
At the start W.I.P.
That looks much better Replacement fence
At the finish The fence and small meeting hut

Uplands School asked the Shed if they could renovate a very tired looking structure. At the start of the school holiday various members applied themselves to the task. After removing the protective fence, inspecting the structure and carrying out a risk assessment work started, tools were unloaded and the existing structure was stripped down. From the look of one of the timbers (last picture) it was just about in time. The relevant materials have been acquired and the hope is to finish the job by the end of the week.

The final couple of tasks were to sort some fencing around a pretty nasty bit of waste ground and repair a small meeting hut. The hut was very unstable so cross members and brackets were added, and a lot of screws and wood were replaced. Ah well - term time has started again so for now we are finished at Uplands. Let us hope that the little ones have as much fun enjoying our handiwork as we did supplying it.

After the kind invitation to join in an assembly Chris H, Colin B, Colin M, Ken and Eric went and had a very pleasant half an hour although they just couldn't get used to how quiet and well-behaved so many young people could be. The school very kindly gave us a Wickes voucher and we handed over a bird box and a bug box for their nature garden which was gratefully received by the science teacher.
